Modern Painted Nightstands With Country Chic Paint


Repurposing furniture can be as simple as changing out the hardware or painting it a different color. Come see how we updated these vintage yard sale nightstands and transformed them into Modern Painted Nightstands using Country Chic Paint and a little bit of imagination!



I have been waiting to share this next furniture makeover with you for awhile now! Perhaps its because I enthusastically scored these lovely side tables at a furniture yard sale for the bargain price of $50, then brought them home to sit while I decided which paint color to paint them.



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!

They don't build furniture like they used to so anytime you can find vintage pieces of furniture with good bones, it feels a little bit like winning the lottery! ;) There's nothing that a little sanding, staining or painting can't do to make old furniture pieces look new again!



Here's what my $50 bought. Aren't they cute and sad all at the same time? They had knicks and scuffs, scratches, a warped door and an uneven finish. But these side tables also had fabulous legs, great lines and the cutest original hardware.

Modern Painted Nightstand Directions:



Before I could paint our side tables in this delicious Midnight Sky color, I had a little prep that I needed to do. First things first.... ditch the doors! Since one of the doors was warped and un-fixable, it made the decision really easy! 



I removed all of the hinges and applied wood filler to the existing screw holes and to all of the knicks in the piece. Took me all of about 15 minutes. Easy peasy!

After about an hour the wood filler was completely dry and ready for a light sanding. The coverage of Country Chic Paint was amazing and in just two light coats, these nightstands were transformed! If you're a fan of this shade of blue, this blue paint color is another really pretty option!




A top coat was applied after 24 hours and the hardware received a much needed facelift with a coat of Pocket Watch Metallic Cream. Here's another look at our before and after Modern Painted Nightstands.

  5. I love the blue color! It looks great! I glad to see that you can't really see the spots where the woodfiller filled in the holes. I need to replace some handles on my sons dresser and the new one I got are smaller so I am hoping that some wood filler will hide it enough so that it won't be noticeable that there use to be a hole there. I might have to do a test run first because drilling holes in the front of his dresser makes me nervous. I don't want to ruin it.

    1. You'll be great! Wood filler will work. Sometimes it takes a few cycles to fill and sand, then fill and sand again... but it will work! Good luck with your dresser!

  8. Carrie, that color is absolutely stunning. And I'm not someone who loves gold as an accent, I usually steer towards silver but the blue and gold look fantastic together.

    Will definitely be checking out these products, I love that you were able to get good coverage and two coats, and the color is just stunning.

  10. Holy moly. Absolute perfection! Can I ask what does the tough stuff do and why was the metallic paint applied? I would love to try and do my first DIY with just a few tips. Thanks in advance. Totally lusting over these!! xo Starla

    1. Thank you, Starla! The Tough Coat is a clear coat that protects the paint. The metallic paint was brushed just onto the hardware and not the actual piece itself. I say Go FOR IT! Practice painting a small piece that you don't necessarily care about first to get your feet wet. It really isn't hard! I like the Purdy paint brushes. A 2" or 2 1/2" is a good base to start with. Prep your piece- wipe it down, make sure it's free from dust and dirt. A light sanding all over will help with the adhesion. Paint in light coats and let it completely dry between coats. Wait 24 hours to apply your top coat. If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask away! Good luck... you'll rock it!

  17. I'm going to be doing this to some nightstands I found- the colour will match perfectly! Question - Is the tough coat necessary? and did it change the look of the paint at all?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Country Chic Paint's Tough Coat adds a protective layer to the paint. I would highly recommend it for any table top surface. The Tough Coat is clear and deepends the paint color a little and adds a light sheen. The pictures you see here have both All-in-One Decor Paint and Tough Coat applications. Hope that helps!

  19. Hi Carrie, I just saw this post on the nightstands, and love love the blue. Have you any experience with CSP's Peacoat? Can you compare it to Midnight Sky for me? I'm wanting to paint an old secretary and don't want it to come out too dark.
    Thanks for a great post.

    1. Hi Kaye! Both colors are pretty bold. I would say that Midnight Sky has more of a purple undertone to its color. We painted this repurposed console here in Peacoat so you can see the difference. http://www.thirtyeighthstreet.com/2015/10/the-donovan-console.html
