Nightstand and Lamp Makeover

So what did I do on my birthday, you might ask?     Got up, ran outside before it got unbearably hot, and primed this free nightstand hubby picked up off the side of the road last year.    Had no idea what I’d do with it but I just couldn’t part with it.    Then when DIL moved McKinley into her new bedroom (read about that here) I knew this little french-y nightstand would be perfect for her room.

nightstand 002

(don’t pay attention to the rusty chair to the right….it’s supposed to look like that in my yard….and see how awful the grass looks….it’s terribly dry here)

Most everyone has either had one of these pieces in at some point  or bought one to paint.     I decided not to remove the hardware but just paint over it.

I picked up this primer yesterday and let me tell you, it is sanity in a can!    It leaves a beautiful base coat and I was even tempted to use it as my actual paint color.     But I had a sample size jar I had mixed up at Home Depot in “Popcorn” so I decided to use it.     However, I highly recommend this primer.

It dries so smooooth!     And for the record, I did not sand this piece or use liquid sander.     I was worried the paint would not adhere to this piece of furniture but after I primed it, no problem.

I also primed this lamp I had that I wasn’t using….then sprayed it with Ballet Slipper Pink….a perfect color for a little girl!

Now we’ll all just have to wait to see how all of this comes together in McKinley’s room.     I am waiting for son to deliver the headboard to me so that I can paint it to match the nightstand.     I’ll be adding an applique and doing a little distressing, then her room will be “done”.      After that we’ll start on the baby’s room.

Between priming and painting, my mom took us to lunch for my birthday.

The nightstand and lamp looked great. Can't wait to see the finished room. Adorable card, those are the best! Glad you had a great day.

Thanks for the review of the rustolem products. I have a couple of things I want to refinish, so I am very grateful to find a product that takes the task of sanding away!
Happy birthday! Your card is such a treasure!
