Yes, it's still weird to say client, so from now on I will use her real name....Elizabeth.
So, I delivered the second nightstand and changing table to Elizabeth yesterday!
You remember the first one....
Well this is what I worked on for her husband. I had a second nightstand in my stash but she wanted something that looked a little more similar (in shape) to her nightstand.
The second nightstand was round on the edges and the drawer on was the bottom instead of the top.
I love how they look similar in color but there is something just a little different about them.
I also love that they aren't too matchy-matchy.
(excuse the dust)
I didn't sand the laminate down at all. I'm just going to call it an experiment!
It turned out okay but when I distressed the piece more white came off so next time
I will sand the laminate.
I put two coats of primer on, a coat of white (Swiss Coffee by Behr), and
two coats of Interesting Aqua by Sherwin Williams.
Then I sanded and slapped on two coats of water-based polyurethane.
I think it turned out pretty nice.
Unfortunately, I was in my car getting ready to leave Elizabeth's house when
I remembered that I forgot to take after pictures.
So I ran back inside and took a few...and it does no justice to how cute the nightstand really is.
Plus everything looks better staged...oh well!
I did the same drawer pull as on the first nightstand but I turned this one vertical
and for a more masculine look and I lined the drawer with a
I love how both nightstands turned!
What do you think?
