Nighstand Revamp {guest post}

Krista from The Happy Housie gave these lovely legged stools a makeover with Cherry Blossom and a top coat of Sweet Dreams for a pretty, girly look!

Hello everyone!! I am really excited to be here today sharing a nightstand revamp that I recently did for our Master Bedroom using two stunning colours from Country Chic: Sweet Dreams and Full Bloom. The finishing touch for this piece is gold wax and gold hardware!

We have had these nightstands for many years...I found them on the side of the road a few years ago and grabbed them ASAP. They were originally refinished in a tomato red color with black hardware, but with recent changes to our master bedroom colour scheme it was time for a change.

Coral & Gold has been calling my name and I found all kinds of inspiration in the fabric I chose for a pillow in our bedroom...

The base coat was done with the bottom color shown which is Sweet Dreams...

Once dry the Sweet Dreams was top coated with Full Bloom. It is such a glorious coral colour...I absolutely love it! I painted the whole piece quickly with the Full Bloom and then went back and immediately distressed it with a damp rag...

Isn't the contrast so soft and beautiful?? You might not normally think to distress with tone-on-tone types of color combos but I absolutely love the effect.

Once the nightstands had fully dried I top coated them with some Gold Wax...

You can really see the difference after putting on the Gold Wax- it brings out such a richness in the paint.

I let it dry for a while in hopes of keeping as much of that rich look as possible and then buffed it off gently with a dry clean cloth...

Lastly, I freshened up our old blackish hardware with some gold spray paint.

I love how it looks in our bedroom! We also recently added some board and batten to the feature wall behind the bed and reupholstered our headboard in a bright graphic print. All easy and thrifty changes but together it looks like a completely different space.

(think foodie but for houses). I love all things related to houses: decorating, DIY, organizing, crafting, gardening, and more. I love sharing projects and ideas, and especially love finding old pieces and fixing them up to make them vibrant and beautiful again.
