Lucy is almost 8 months old, and her nursery still isn’t finished yet. Whoops!
I found this nightstand awhile ago at a thrift store for $25. It is completely solid and in perfect condition, but it was pretty outdated and in desperate need of a makeover.
I love the feminine lines of french provincial furniture. I always think these piececs look beautiful in nurseries.
Here is the before:
I used Valspar ‘Champagne Pink’ to make my homemade chalk paint. After two coats of paint, I sanded the entire piece with 800 grits sandpaper for a smoother finish. I sealed the piece Annie Sloan Wax in clear. I have tried a bunch of different waxes, and I always come back to it. It is expensive, but it does last through several pieces of painted furniture. It’s easy and smooth to work with AND it doesn’t have a horrible chemical smell.
I also spray painted the original hardware gold.
Here is the after:
I love how it turned out. It fits perfectly in her pink and gold nursery!
