My Night Stand

Hey y'all I am going to share a little night stand makeover with you today. I have been searching for a night stand for my room for about a month now, and I went to antique/flea mall and found one recently that had the look that I was going for. It was such a dark brown and kinda wavy it just was not pretty.. Here is the before.

I love the shape and the legs on it and even the hardware but it needed much needed updating!

I recently got accepted to be a guest blogger for Country Chic Paint, They send me the paint to use on pieces and I write blog posts for their blog int return! so get ready for a ton of new makeovers! I am super excited about this new venture.

So for this piece I chose the colors lazy linen and elegance. Lazy linen is a light grey color and elegance is a very light blue/green color. and it goes with my room great! which is painted in Sherwin Williams- watery and just a basic white color. 

The paint goes on super smooth and has great coverage, it is super easy to work with. It has little smell and VOC free which is a huge plus and is chalk and mineral based and all waxes are made from beeswax and natural oils. It dries super quick, I was able to finish this night stand in a couple of days. I started off with a beeswax distressing bar to make distressing a little easier.

And did the base in the lazy linen and the drawer in the elegance and finished the drawer in white wax and rest in natural clear wax! What do y'all think?
