Not all upcycled furniture starts out in bad shape. These nightstands are the perfect example. They are traditional in design and finish, with modern hardware. The client was moving to a new home and wanted to update the look. The nightstands were solid and in excellent condition–they just didn’t fit the new decor.
The client envisioned a brown/gray finish with a charcoal gray drawer and “cool” hardware. I stripped the old finish off and sanded it down to bare wood. I applied a custom blend stain from Sherwin Williams that hit the perfect note of gray/brown.
I painted the drawer in Waverly Chalk paint in Elephant. Finally, I scored these GORGEOUS drawer pulls that completed the look. As I had painted the drawer, I was able to fill the existing hole from the single screw knob and attach the pulls by drilling new holes.
This project is a perfect example of how furniture can be transformed into a COMPLETELY different look. Now it fits seamlessly into the client’s new home.
