I have another nightstand! This one is mid century… which is one of the styles I absolutely love. Once again it came from my favorite goodwill… the one 2 minutes from our church. We go there all the time! Last Sunday I got this nightstand which I painted a grey-brown color. My mom also got a great cabinet for a steal! I will definitely be showing it on here sometime soon.
This piece is solid (it is a Dixie) and I believe it is made out of walnut. I loved the style, but thought the wood could be broken up a bit with some paint. There were also some scratches on the top that I wanted to cover, but did not want to stain the whole piece, so paint was the better option.
My favorite color on mid century pieces is navy blue. I think it complements the style. I have done another mid century modern nightstand in the same navy. I liked the way that one turned out, so I used the same color on this piece. I was also inspired by the pieces I see on Vintage Ground. Be sure to check out all of the great pieces he does. Good stuff.
I just took out the drawers, taped off the legs and covered them with newspaper, then painted 3 coats of blue. It was as easy as that! Oh, and if you can’t already tell… I love me some vintage fans… and animals. There are no animals in these picture… but there usually are 🙂
