Fresh White Nightstand

Good morning and welcome back to the work week! Mike and I were super busy this weekend. On Friday we finished staining the windows in the house. On Saturday we went garage saling and I found a bunch of cheap and some free items, including 2 file cabinets and a dresser! Then on Sunday we did a ton of yard work. We trimmed trees, weeded the gardens, moved the entire wood pile to the fire pit and cut more firewood. We also cleaned out the screen porch and started prepping the house for company this weekend.

Oh yeah! Friday is Mike's birthday so we are having at least 9 people staying with us on Friday and Saturday night to celebrate, including all 4 of my siblings! More on that later.

This is the story of the fabulous nightstand refresh. My mom found this nightstand for free, so she handed it over to me.

I brought it up to Vermont and gave it some TLC. Witness the power of (spray) paint!

I've been using spray primer to prep my pieces, and it's making a world of difference. The paint goes on smoother and more evenly, and in much less time!

And I've already sold it :) Woo-hoo! Meanwhile in New York, my mom is preparing for her master bathroom to finally be refinished! I can't wait to feature the before and after on my blog! Oh, and I was featured on West Furniture Revival! So check it out if you get a chance. Happy Monday!

Here are a few of my popular DIY projects:
