Annie Sloan & My Nightstand March 16, 2012

Happy Saturday!,
If your looking for a fast furniture fix, Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is about as fast as you can get! No, this is not a paid advertisement, but checks are always accepted, Annie.

I’ve had this old nightstand next to my side of the bed for nearly 25 years. The top surface was getting so dinged up that I covered it with a tray. ( Full disclosure, here!).

Mr. Wonderful removed the bottom trim, to add new ball feet, adding about an inch in height. He primed the raw wood for me and screwed the feet into the board for easy painting.

Using a sponge mini roller on all the flat surfaces, I was able to apply 2 coats (with light sanding in between) in very little time.

I also used a “gold leaf” craft pen to add a bit of detail, matching the brass hardware.

Ooh la la! That’s French for a “fast, fun project”!

Have a great weekend!,
Barbara

    I love the transformation of the color and the addition of the feet..Great idea! I still have my original bedroom set. The various pieces are distributed in both of my guest rooms..I am going to be painting those pieces in the near future..The style is pretty much like yours…so I am inspired to get going on the project!!

      Hi Shirley!, I’m ready to try some of the Ben Moore and Sherwin Williams product I’ve been hearing about too. But it could’t be this easy! Thanks for stopping by!

    Looks great. I need to get working on something with the Annie Sloan Paint. I would like to redo my fireplace mantle. Love the ball feet on the nightstand.

      Good morning Lana!,
      I put this project off for too long. It’s simpler than I expected, so good luck!

    It looks great! I am hoping to give some new life to a few pieces when we move in to repurpose them so this transformation was inspiring. How clever to use a gold leaf pen to add that detail – nicely done! I am working on my post this weekend – will get it to you asap!

    You’ve got your hands full! When do you get to move in? There’s never a shortage of potential projects…eh?

    One day at a time!
