As you know, I’m all about scouring craigslist for hidden gems. A few months back I found this french nightstand and scooped it up for around $40.00 thinking it would be perfect as a console table in our tiny entryway. I loved the lines but the color just wasn’t working in our apartment, it was a little too washed out.
This past weekend I finally got around to giving it a few coats of glossy black paint. Here’s the finished result:
The fixtures are still looking a little dingy because the previous owner seems to have lightly painted them in spots, I guess they were going for shabby chic? I’m trying to figure out the best way to get that paint off and restore these to their original shiny brass glory. I’d love to hear your suggestions.
Have a great weekend!!
