The minute I spotted these two, I knew I had to have them. Gorgeous night tables with Queen Anne legs and curves abound. I couldn’t wait to get them home to give them a much needed makeover.
When planning how to paint pieces I usually start with paint colour and then pick accessories as I go. This time was very different. You might remember that over a year ago (if you followed my fb page way back then) I received an order of knobs (photo inserted), and in it, were these amazing, milky green glass furniture jewelry, or knobs as some of you may call them. 😉 I was dying to use them but hadn’t found the right pieces until these little ones came into my life.
After the knobs were picked I had to decide on paint. If you know me, you know I have a fear of painting things white. I’m always afraid it’s too safe, too plain, too overused, too difficult to topcoat but, for these knobs and these tables, there was no other option. White was the perfect non-colour!The challenge of painting with white was even more so since I used Old Fashioned Milk Paint in Snow white, for the first time. I won’t go on about how much I love this paint since you all know by now. It did what I loved and turned out amazing.
I used Rustoleum Chalked Protective Topcoat (only one finish option, matte) and it turned out beautifully. You can’t even tell it’s there. So happy to have found this product.
I also had the drawer liners stashed away for the perfect piece(s). The perfect finishing touch for the perfect pair of night stands. They might even be too pretty to hide in the bedroom! 🙂
