Duck Egg Blue Nightstand


I love the Duck Egg Blue Chalk Paint and I finally finished painting my nightstand with it.


I picked up this nightstand at my local thrift shop for $8.  It is a really heavy piece of furniture for being so small.  It was in pretty rough shape when I found it, but aren't the legs cute?  I patched all the thin cracks with wood filler.  I also patched the drawer pull holes with wood filler because I wanted to put single knobs in the center of the drawers.


This is how the nightstand looked all dressed up, with two coats of Duck Egg Blue, accessorized with pretty, crystal knobs.  I found these crystal knobs at a yard sale and got a whole box of them for only $5!  The woman I bought them from ordered them for her whole kitchen and then decided she did not really like them. 


After distressing the edges, I applied a coat of clear wax with my wax brush.  I am really loving the Duck Egg Blue color and I like how the wax seemed to make the color more subdued.



The inside of the drawers were in pretty bad shape, so I got out my Mod Podge and lined them with some vintage sheet music.

It's beautiful, love the rich tones of the chalk paint. How did you find the coverage? I've only attempted smaller projects and found I had to do several coats, so interested to know how other bloggers are finding it?

When you say you are distressing after you paint the piece what exactly are you doing? Are you just wiping it off with a rough rag or sanding it or using some type of other paint or material? I am new to thisand hope to get a lot better with my painting and style tips. Please respond back to my email which is Mmancell@comcast.net. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. I love all the work that you have done. I wish you were near me. I live in Memphis Tennessee. Thanks again, Michelle Mancell
