Okay, bear with me-first official WordPress post, I’m figuring things out as I go!
My husband had two of these nightstands from before we were married and we had been using them until I recently started our Master bedroom redesign. They are great for storage and I want to use them in my master closet as a sort of dresser but thought they needed a little pick me up.
I first cleaned and sanded the nightstands then primed them with spray primer. At this point I got nervous. I’d never painted real wood furniture before.
I spray painted the top with Rustoleum Universal in Gloss Black. Then on the body I used some leftover Benjamin Moore flat paint in Alaskan Husky from painting the Master Bedroom. I gave it a good three coats and let me tell you-it was no joke getting into all the nooks and crannies of the carvings!While the paint was drying I sprayed all of the hardware with Rustoleum Universal in Oil Rubbed Bronze.
When the paint had fully dried I gave it three thorough coats of Minwax spray polyurethane to protect it. I love the look of the finished piece, its a total change from the Before!
