I found a pair of French Provincial bedside chests that matched but had slightly different hardware on the top drawers. I loved that they were similar but didn't match exactly. These chests were a little bigger then normal sized night stands and with curvy feet and three drawers of storage, I was sold! What I didn't love? There were medium size chunks taken out of of the back legs! Luckily for me, I have a handy husband. ;)
Once the bones of the pieces were fixed, these were refinished in Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan in Country Grey. I think this may be my new favorite color. Its a beautiful blend of light taupe grey hues that give bedroom furniture a perfect blank slate to work with.
Painting over the gold trim updated these pieces and brought them out of the 1970's. Selecting a nice neutral color still allows all of the details shine without looking too busy.
