*Holly Paint*

This little French Provincial Nightstand was FREE on Craigslist.  
Though when something is listed Free then usually that means it needs
a little more than just paint.  
The top of the nightstand is particle board so when I sanded it the top was not smooth 
and couldn't just be painted.

So I used some fabric and good ol' Modge Podge and it did the trick!  
I painted the body of the nightstand white and the top a dark gray.  
I used a tone on tone white fabric with little flowers on it to Modge Podge to the top. 
The gray paint underneath was perfect because it allowed the flowers to pop out! 
I then sealed the top with Polyacrylic.

No that is not a bad spot on the top (bottom, right hand corner)  just my camera that has been dropped more than once...time to think about a new camera!!

Another "camera spot" this time on the top left corner!  This spot tends to move around!!
