Night Stand Make-Over

My husband bought these nightstands in his bachelor days and they have since made their way to our master bedroom…looking like this:

The finish is too dark for the plans we have to lighten this room and make it breathe. So we hauled them out to the garage for a make over. First up, the sanding.

We hand-sand because it’s the only way to make sure you take off JUST enough of the finish without distorting the line of the piece and going too deep.

Here’s after one coat of spray paint. We ended up doing three coats total and then the tops got a poly seal brushed on for durability.

Ready for the reveal?

Now that those drawer pulls are more visible against the white I really love their shape.
