A Night Stand

This is a solid wood night stand that I picked up at Goodwill for $9.99.  I had so much other stuff in my cart that I couldn't fit this in too.  So, I took the top drawer out and walked around the store with just the drawer.  I figured no one would try and buy it with a missing drawer : ).  I sanded down the top and drawer fronts and stained them in Minwax Jacobean and sealed with a clear poly.  For the rest of the piece, I used a sample jar of Benjamin Moore "Quiet Moments".  It was just enough to cover the night stand.  I distressed it and then sealed it with a clear poly.  I also sprayed the original hardware with oil rubbed bronze.

  1. Ha! Good tip about taking the draw out...very smart!! And the dresser looks great, too! I'm loving the two tone look lately!

  2. This is dresser is amazing! I love the white paint and dark wood combination.

  3. You do such a great job Sarah! Thanks for sharing with the newbie party.

  4. So cute! I'm dying to try this look on a piece, but just haven't found anything for the right price yet. :)

  5. The night table looks great and the price is certainly right! ~ Maureen

  6. Is that a soft blue on the body! I love the color combo, beautiful. I just finished a nightstand myself from a desk. I'd love if you'd link up to my Frugal Treasures Tuesday party. I'm a new follower via GFC and Linky and hope you'll follow back.

    1. Thanks, Barbe! Headed your way now!

  7. WOW, the wood turned out so nice! Good job on the $10 deal.

  14. Love the light and the dark--very nice redo. Thanks for linking up!

    1. Thanks so much, Hannah! On my way to follow you back!

  16. Very brave to only take the drawer - surprised someone didn't try to scoop up that drawer less find!

    Love Jacobean - I used the same stain on my floors. Love the two tone effect. I'm a Linky follower now!

    1. Thanks, Kelly! Headed your way now!

  17. Kelly, Beautiful job! How funny about the drawer. :-) When I'm in that situation I've learned to take the tag up to a sales person right away. I had a lady one time overhear me talking about buying a bookcase and she went right up to the front and told them she was buying it before I made it up to the front with it. They were actually ringing her up! I found you through Spotlight Saturday at Classy Clutter. Looking forward to following more of your creative projects. Happy Easter!

  18. Very pretty with the two-toned look!
    I am so glad you came by to link up to the party at Embracing Change!
    Please come back this week again! I would love to have you there!
