Vintage Nightstand Before and After
By Our Lake Life on Oct 30, 2012
Something great happens when you find the perfect piece of furniture at the perfect price. I wasn’t actively looking for a nightstand but had it in mind that I’d pick one up for Nik’s room if the opportunity presented itself.
I found a great candidate on craigslist for $25.00. Unheard of in our area where craigslist prices tend to be a tad overinflated. Good for when you’re selling something but not so good for when you’re bargain hunting.
Here was the nightstand before it was a solid piece, very heavy with dovetail drawers along with a few scratches and and spots of chipping veneer. After a very thorough sanding and a few coats of Valspar dark gray spray paint on the frame and sides and Minwax English Chestnut on the drawer fronts and top it’s got a new lease on life perfect for a Nik’s soon to be made over little boys room.
