I found the nightstand on the left at one of the very first auctions I ever went to. It's lived with our family for a while now and moved from PA to AR back to PA. It's been a few different colors while we've had it too. When we moved into our house in October, we no longer had a place for it. So it sat in the garage, waiting its 3rd makeover.
A couple months ago while at a local antique store I found the nightstand on the right. I knew it would be a close enough match to the other one (with a little work) - and pairs of nightstands tend to sell better than alone. So it came home with me, and they both got a whole new look!

I filmed a video of the painting process on Facebook Live.
And here is the finished set! Don't they look so sharp?! Queenstown Gray is a gorgeous dark charcoal gray. It pairs well with many color schemes. I sealed these with a coat of Flat out Flat Topcoat since I knew I wouldn't be distressing them. I wanted them to have an extra layer of protection and keep that really clean look. Flat out Flat makes a beautiful finish!
All I had to do was remove the door on the newer nightstand and add a shelf. Now they are pretty darn close to a perfect match!
I couldn't resist these fantastic silver pulls from D. Lawless Hardware - they are fancy, ornate, and really pop off of the dark gray finish.
I staged this pair with a Chalk Couture sign I made on a gold leaf frame. Chalk Couture is the most fun for making your own home decor.
I'm pretty happy with how this pair turned out - they went home to start a bedroom makeover in a client's master bedroom!
Until next time,
