Pinterest does not only consume too much of my time but it inspires me! I have been on the hunt for "French Provincial" furniture since I saw some beautiful pieces refinished on Pinterest.
So the hunt was on... Then out of the blue a very sweet friend stopped by the second hand shop and found the perfect starter piece... $12!!! It was a steel!
So the sanding began and my goal was to do my first project as cheaply as possible.. So I only wanted to use material I had on hand (I did end up buying the clear coat to protect it and some black spray paint) I used the Green paint from my bathroom and Brown paint from my dining room (with a touch of black to darken the brown from my stairs)
The bottom half was laminated MDF and a funky plastic like material...
So I rough sanded everything and then just went for it!
The top was beautiful!!
Even Adalie Helped :)
All painted up
To do the top and antiquing I made a watered down combo of brown and black paint.
I brushed it on
Then took a rag and wiped it off
The difference between the two colors
I did this to the whole night stand
Proud little Adalie has already claimed it... Lol she had her winter boots on... yikes!
Before I clear coated it and painted the pulls
After clear coated and black painted pulls
I absolutely love the way it turned out! I can not wait to use it in our new house!! Thanks for stopping by!!!
Note: I am no way a professional so if I did things not as they should be done, sorry... It was a fun experiment and I had fun!!
