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.
