Presto, chang-o!

I give you the before:
NighstandJuntique
and the after
NightstandFinished

I lurve it! So thankful to Jennifer for her tips, especially the suggestion of coating it with a sealer. I thought the sealer was just a pratical step to protect from damage but its a lot more than that.
NightstandDetail
The acrylic coat gives it a much more polished and finished appearance. It makes my many mistakes (drips, brush strokes, etc.) look intentional and shiny. Woo-hoo.

NightstandInSitu
The only bummer is that it only fits my side of the bed which happens to be the side you can't see unless you are really looking for it. So its a bit wasted. I don't want to move the bed over anymore either so this will be its permanent home.

What do you think would be a good compliment on the other side?

  8. The other side of the bed is pretty tight. The round table wouldn't fit. I only have about 15 inches.

  14. That is sweet. I have a dresser and a headboard in a similar finish (the dresser was inherited from my grandmother, and sadly is actually mahogany, the headboard was a craigslist buy) -- maybe when we actually get around to a) purchasing a house and b) decorating it I'll try something similar.

  42. YAY! It came out fantastic! I wonder if you can find a fancy-vintagey stand lamp, since you're pressed for space on the other side.
