Two Tone Nightstands Makeover

Are you tired of furniture makeover posts yet? I really hope not because we have a whooooole lot more coming.

Between having to furnish my parents’ entire guest bedroom and replacing a lot of our existing furniture in the new house in a couple of months, Craigslist better watch out. I’m a comin’ for it.

But oddly enough, while I was on the hunt for a pair of nightstands for the guest room, I had exactly zero luck on Craigslist and in thrift stores the past couple of months. Thrift shopping is so much harder in the winter because the inventory always seems low. (Spring cleaning and yard sale season needs to hurry up already.)  So I ended up having to buy a pair of new ones.

I managed to catch them on a major markdown at Kirkland’s and I had a coupon, so they ended up being about what I would have paid at the thrift store anyway.

If painting new furniture is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

Since we’re sticking to blue and mint tones in this bedroom, I thought the Fusion Brook color would be perfect. But I still wanted to retain a little bit of wood.

These nightstands were veneer, so I couldn’t strip them down and restain them like I did the French blue dresser, but I was able to get them looking very similar to a stain using the Algonquin color on the drawers followed by a layer of the Espresso wax.

I’m LOVING this pretty shade of bluish green. And the rug I chose for in here has the exact same shade of mint in it as the nightstands now.

My parents found the perfect bed on Craigslist that I was able to paint for them too, but I’ll be sharing more of that later as more of the room comes together.

I can’t believe how far this space has come already. I mean… it was long overdue.

After all of this furniture makeoverin’, I might need to crash in that bed once it’s all finished. But since we’ll be living here in March while we’re between houses, I might as well get used to it. 😉

  1. Beautiful! Can I ask for a little more details of how you did the drawers. I have dark night stands that I would love to lighten a little, but I have no idea how to keep them looking somewhat like wood with painting.

  2. I am always amazed by the makeovers. I always think “how can that piece be any cuter” and then it always looks so awesome! Keep ’em coming!!!!
