I was really drawn to this nightstand because of those long giraffe-like legs. I think it gives the piece a quirky look. This nightstand was found on craigslist where I picked it up along with the matching dresser.
I lightly sanded the nightstand, then I mixed up some milk paint (OFMP Tavern Green) since it was one of the only colors I had left. I made sure to add the bonding agent to prevent chipping… which obviously didn’t work 🙂
I used 3 coats on the piece, then let it dry overnight. In the morning it was cracking and chipping like crazy! I used a spackling knife to get off most of the paint, vacuumed the piece and then took it outside to sand it. To seal the paint I used 2 coats of Country Chic Paint’s Tough Coat. Once it dried I lined the drawer with some grey triangle print paper and added a knob I found on clearance at Pier 1.
