While shopping at a local thrift store for a small coffee table, I found this little antique nightstand for $8 and just couldn’t resist buying it. Although I don’t paint too many items to sell anymore, I just had to bring it home for that price. I thought that maybe I could find a place for it somewhere in my house. It also had the original glass knobs which I had removed already before I took this photo.
I loved the curved front drawer and the interesting “feet” on the front of the nightstand.
It did have some water rings on the top so I decide to chalk paint it.
Here is the result after several coats of chalk paint. It was ready for purchase. I posted it on Craigslist and some Facebook sites to sell and it sold quickly for a nice profit. Interestingly, the person who bought it was going to paint it an off-white instead of the bright white that I had painted it. Oh well, that’s what happens sometimes. I hope the new owner enjoys it for many years!
