I painted a pair of these nightstands in a fun poppy red color. I custom mixed the paint color using some General Finishes milk paint in Persimmon and a slight amount of Coral Crush mixed with some red latex paint I had on hand. I sanded before I began with 150 and 220 to even out the finish, fixed some trouble spots and filled the old hardware holes. Red is a color that doesn’t have good coverage (or at least the red latex I mixed in didn’t) so each nightstand took 4-5 coats of paint. I especially had trouble covering the previous hardware holes that I filled with wood filler- it just kept showing through! I made sure to sand with high grit sandpaper before the last coat and then after the last coat before sealing them with wax. A new silver and white pull was added and I lined the drawers with colorful paper in a funky print.
