Have you ever had a piece of furniture that you started painting and get it all painted then your like well that is to plain and it needs something more. Well that is how it started with this little night stand. I was just going to paint it all white and distress it well that is not how it always goes, so this how it started.

This months contest works out really well for wanting to add a pop of color to something. This months sponsor is Velvet Finishes but all opinions are 100% mine!

This month I participated in the Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest’s
“Colour My World” October contest sponsored by Velvet Finishes.

To started off with this night stand I did two coats of understated. The coverage was great, I even did a base coat on the drawers in the same color.

After that I order a darkish teal/green color called Tranquil. I covered the drawers in that color I did two coats again just to make sure I had good coverage.

So once all of that had time to dry and finish I used a sanding block to distress all the areas to give it a older look. I love how simple distress around the edges can give it so much character. 

After all of that I finally finished the piece in Protect, which is a satin polyacrylic , which gives a little shine but not to much, its not over glossy!

I think the night stand turned out great and gives just the right amount of pop of color without it being to much for a room! so you can easily color your world with small pops of color and not have to go all out. So how would you color your world?
