aqua nightstands

So I’m totally in love with these aqua nightstands.   I got them on Facebook for $60.  Yes, I said Facebook.  How many of you have a private {large} group where you sell to each other?  I’m in about 4 groups and they’re awesome!  You have less risk of a weirdo coming to your house than Craigslist since you may know some of these people or you can see they’re friends of friends.  The group I got these in is a “Vintage Finds” group, so fun!

They were a breeze to paint!  All I did was give them a light sand with my mouse sander.

Then I used leftover ‘Swimming’ by Sherwin-Williams paint (from this wall color and also this coffee table) and switched back and forth from a foam roller to a Purdy brush (from this mint dresser).  I just hand painted/rolled two quick coats.

My fav part of refinishing furniture is distressing, chipping aka making it look old and worn.  My nine year old daughter hates this style which makes me laugh.  That’s why I kept her room makeover clean, no distressed furniture.  But wait till she moves out, it’s on, baby!! (;

I’ve been using a putty knife to chip away the paint on the edges of the furniture…it doesn’t damage the wood underneath.

These knobs were also used HERE and HERE.  I ordered them in bulk years ago and have been looking for ways to use them up!  Wish I remembered the company I ordered them from??  A quick coat of poly to seal them and you’re good to go!

Loving them.  We’re going to put them in our master bedroom that is in desperate need of a style.  I would say “makeover” but it’s never been done in the first place.  WHY is it the master is the last room in the house to get attention?? It should be the first, right?
