French Linen Night Stand


Over the holidays, while I was going to yard sales with my two sisters in San Diego, I found the perfect night stand for my bedroom.  We just moved and I finally have a bedroom with tall ceilings again, so I pulled my antique, iron bed out of storage.  In our new room, we only have a narrow space between the bed and the wall next to it, so I needed a night stand that would not take up too much space. 

I love the shape of this vintage night stand and it only cost me $10.  The glazed mustard paint was chipped and dirty, but that was an easy fix.


I used one of the newer colors of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint called french linen.  It is a gorgeous gray with brown undertones. 

The drawer pulls had been painted over a couple of times and even Mr. Rubbish could not remove them.  I originally wanted to spray paint the hardware black or oil-rubbed bronze.  Considering I could not remove them from the drawers, I just painted over them again.  I brushed them with dark wax, so they would stand out a little.  Then, I accented the trim on the night stand with bright white to match the bedding.  I used my wax brush to apply a coat of Annie Sloan clear wax over the entire piece for a beautiful, subtle sheen.


I just brought this becrystaled candelabra light home from a barn sale and I am looking forward to re-wiring and fixing it up.

I was almost sorry to hear that you had moved but glad to know you are using your favorite bed again. I hope your new house is as charming as the old one was. If you live in it, chances are, you have made your surroundings look absolutely beautiful!
