I finished the second coat of paint on my nightstand yesterday. I must say it looks quite lovely and I’m afraid my photos do not adequately capture its new colour. By the way, I don’t recommend packing for a move and painting furniture at the same time. It seems like a good idea but it’s rather tiring!
After cleaning and sanding with a sanding sponge, I painted the nightstand with two coats of Behr’s Aqua spray. I was pleased with how it turned out as I wanted it to look somewhat imperfect and like it came from a French farmhouse (yes it’s via Mexico but this is my decor fantasy, so just go with it!)
My plan is to replace the existing paint-covered hardware with simple brushed metal and keep my bedside accessories simple – the silver clock, a beautiful silver & black lamp I bought in Saskatoon and a glass of water…
By the way, please ignore the total mess that appears in the background of my photos. Moving + painting + not vaccuuming = tres messy 🙂 I am excited to embrace a more minimalist interior in my shoebox sized pied a terre near English Bay. I’ll keep you posted with photos!
