Nightstand Transformation from Blah to Beauty-ful

Gotta love how paint can completely transform an outdated furniture piece.  

I picked up this little eyesore--err, I mean potential beauty--for $15 at the local flea market a few months ago.  Even with St. Patrick's Day coming up, its shade of kelly green did nothing for our home decor.   

 So, out came the ASCP (Annie Sloan Chalk Paint) in French Linen and Old White.

There is a great deal of discussion on whether ASCP is worth the high price.  I've been experimenting with a few colors of the expensive paint.  It really does cover well.  You only need 1 - 2 coats.  I can't say I'm hooked, but I do enjoy its consistency and ease of use.  Some days, it beats making my own chalk paint.

I tried my hand at stenciling this time by adding a decorative design to the top of the nightstand.

And a little stamping on the bottom drawer.

As well as a decorative paper liner inside the drawer.

 I finished the nightstand with a little distressing around the edges.  

 This transformed beauty landed in my daughter's room, replacing an old boring bookcase.
