Roadside Rescue Night Stands

Happy Monday!

I’ve been on the look out for months for matching night stands for the master bedroom.

We discovered these darlings sitting on the side of the road a few weeks ago and were almost giddy with excitement as we backed up and loaded them into the pick up.  I do love pick up trucks!

Roadside Rescue = $0

 

We got them home and immediately started inspecting them. They were in “perfect” shape. All of the drawers worked perfectly, no gaping holes, just simply wonderful and in much need of a make over.

I’m only showing you one because of course I got ahead of myself and forgot to take a picture of the duo before I began painting.

 

 

 

I went and spoke with my “paint guy” and told him that I wanted a chalky chocolate brown and we decided on Hazelnut Truffle…… YUM!

 

 

 

Now the fun begins. I mixed this up into a batch of chalk paint with the handy dandy drill attachment that my paint guy recommended and got busy.

Once the base coat was dry I decided that it needed some additional color.  I mixed up a little of the Hazelnut Truffle with some Cantaloupe Orange, mixed it up real good, taped off the top and added the 2nd color to the top of the night stands.

 

 

 

Then I dry brushed the color over the drawer fronts, the remainder of the top and along the base of the night stands and started falling in love.

 

 

 

 

I hunted around for a color for the hardware and decided on a black base coat with bronze over the top.  Honestly, i’m still undecided on the hardware, but we’ll see where it goes.

 

 

 

 

A nice waxing and they’re on their way to the house. These will go very nicely with the bedroom makeover that we’re planning.

 

 

Wishing you a fantastic week!  Smooch!!
