We recently painted a nightstand for a customer. It was a small antique chest of drawers that was quite boring, until of course we added a little Chalk Paint. Take a look.
I love the way it turned out. It was painted in Pure White and Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint. It also received a slight tatter, and a layer of dark wax.
It's "dirtied" up enough I hope to conceal the wear and tear that a little boy can do. With very nautical colors, and dapper pulls that look like fancy buttons, on a blazer, this little piece would look great in any nautical themed room.
The top is a beautiful sea of blue. It reminds of ocean waves.
This little nightstand is going in a little boys room, but it would look just as great in a grownup or teens room.
Or in a family room. Look at the stripes on the rug. They remind me of the dresser stripes.
Here's another example of a nautical family room. Notice the small table next to the couch. Wouldn't our little dresser fit in perfectly in it's place?
Here is the before picture. It's cute, but had a ton more potential.
One last look. I hope the new little owner likes it!
