Colorful Nightstand Makeover with Dixie Belle Paint

Don't buy new nightstands, refinish and paint your old ones or find an inexpensive pair at a garage sale, thrift shop or estate sale! Painting furniture has been the latest craze for the past 5 years. I think it has become so popular over the years because it allows you to up-cycle and reuse the furniture pieces that you already own and transform them into beautiful new pieces of furniture with just a little bit of paint!

Modern Painted Nightstands With Country Chic Paint

I have been waiting to share this next furniture makeover for awhile. I found these lovely side tables at a furniture yard sale several months ago for $50. Score! I knew that it was a good price for the pair and that I could turn them into something special. I'm affectionately calling this next furniture makeover the Hudson Side Tables and these twins have been a labor of love! A big thank you to Country Chic Paint for sending us these painting supplies for the project!

Have you purchased something that you didn't really need simply because it was on sale or better yet... because it was free?! The thought of free or a super sale starts our wheels spinning and pretty soon we have talked ourselves into a purchase not necessarily because we needed it, but because it was the deal of the century! I’m a big fan of purging… clutter is a complete pet peeve of mine. If the item isn’t sentimental and it isn’t getting used, then it’s really just taking up space. And in my humble opinion, empty space is valuable! A clean space does wonders for our mood so if our items aren’t working for us, sell them, donate them or up-cycle them into something that we will use!

Case in point: This mirror came with a dresser as a packaged deal and while I loved the size of it, the mirror was really scratched up. Rather then throw it away or spend more money to have another mirror cut, I decided to turn it into a chalkboard for the holidays. This easy Chalkboard Mirror tutorial can be found here....

Restoration Hardware Inspired Dresser Tutorial

I'm not willing to pay several hundreds or even a $1000 for a piece of furniture. Unless it's a sofa or a mattress... I don't skimp on those. ;) But, just because I'm not willing to spend a lot of money on furniture doesn't mean that I don't want the look of high end furniture in my home! What if you could have both?! Today, I'm going to show you an easy tutorial for a DIY Restoration Hardware finish that will leave your family and friends guessing whether or not your piece is DIY or the real deal...
