I showed a before picture of the nightstand I am working on here.

Elizabeth, the lady who has faith in me and "loves what I do" (those are her words...not mine), is coming to pick it up tomorrow.

Here it is...

I used an "oops" paint I found at the ReStore. It's called Interesting Aqua by Sherwin Williams.
I used a razor to distress the piece...the only time I used sandpaper was to even out the edges and in between coats of poly. I used a high gloss, water-based polyurethane. I went with two coats on the top since its being used as a nightstand.

The fabric was bought at Hobby Lobby and I had just enough leftover from another project to use on this piece.
The hardware is from Hobby Lobby too. I have the same pulls on my buffet and when Elizabeth came over she made mention of how much she liked them. I'm hoping to surprise her with them!

Overall, I love how this one turned out and I hope Elizabeth loves it too!
