While browsing salvation army one day I came across this little gold nightstand. I liked the lines of it and so I picked it up. It cost about $11 bucks which was a little more than I wanted to spend but I liked it so I went with it. Here’s how it started out.
I pulled out my sander and went to town. I removed the front detail to sand and get rid of some of the gold. After I sanded it down I primed and painted it white.
Here’s how she looks now. I added a little distress ink to the edges but just softly. I love how it turned out, I only wish that I could have found another one to match!
great job . its such a cute little endtable.
I love what paint can do. It came out great.

Lovely! I get so excited when I see thrift store before/afters:) I’m hooked on them! What white paint did you use? It’s really crisp and clean. In the middle of my own do-over now, need a good white!
