I found this nightstand at a garage sale this summer and loved the size and shape.
It sat in my garage while I tried to decide exactly how I wanted to paint it. I received a request for a navy blue nightstand for a boys room and this nightstand came to mind. It seems to have a boyish-masculine feel and navy blue seemed perfect.
I'm loving this nightstand...something totally different than my
normal "cottage-shabby chic" colors!
The client also requested stripes in white, red and tan...so this is how I incorporated them...the pull is satin nickel.
I added a fabric lined drawer for a finishing touch.
I totally had fun doing this nightstand...and through it all I learned that the next time I paint navy...I will tint my primer first...it took lots of coats to get this final product
...I LOVE lessons!
That is wonderful! I've never seen a nightstand like that!ReplyDelete

Were the stripes painted on top of the blue?ReplyDelete
To Everyone...thanks for the comments and compliments!ReplyDelete
To Annie: Yes, the stripes were painted on top of the blue. I marked them off with painters tape, primed them, then painted the colors on!
This turned out great! Love the stars in the drawer. Visiting via Tute in TuesdayReplyDelete
