Hope everyone is safe and well during this time. I wanted to share a blog post with you on how I refinished this pair of nightstands.
First I cleaned both tables with a vinegar solution, scuff sanded them, then wiped them down again. I then removed the trim that was in between the drawers as I felt it made them look outdated.
I filled all the holes where the previous hardware was because I knew I wanted to change up the handles. I applied two coats of white primer to both tables and then let dry for 4 hours.
I then applied 2-3 coats of Country Chic Paint in the color, Fancy Frock.
Once the paint was completely dry I sealed them with Country Chic Paint’s Tough Coat because I knew they would be used a lot and I wanted to give them extra durability.
I put the tables on their backs so I could work on the bottoms to attach the legs. I created a block platform in each corner so that the legs were able to attach to something flat. Each leg comes with a metal plate that you can attach to the wood blocks.

Hey everyone hope you are all well. I haven't blended a piece in so long and really felt the need to blend some colours together. This piece has a subtle blend of jitterbug, vanilla frosting and liquorice.
First i scuff sanded the dresser and fixed anything that needed fixing or filling on the drawers using wood filler and 220 grit sand paper.
I then cleaned the whole piece and the mirror with vinegar and lemon solution, making sure all the dust and small particles were pixked up with the paper towel.
I used my Country Chic Paint oval 2" and 1.5" paint brushes to apply the different colours to blend. I also used a spray bottle of water.
I like to have a base coat of paint when i blend sometimes depending on the piece and how old it is. This dresser i painted two coat of liquorice first then lightly sanded when it was dry so i had a really smooth finish. Country chic paint when lightly sanded becomes so smooth its amazing.
I then painted two coats of jitterbug and while it was drying i sprayed water on the middle of each drawer and used my small paint brush to swipe a small amount of vanilla frosting. I then sprayed water of the vanilla frosting and used my paint brush to blend it in leaving a highlighted area in the middle of each drawer and sides.
I added a bit of liquorice on the edges and legs to create a dark shadow.
Once the whole piece was dry i used my sprayer which i use mostly to spray on my topcoats. I applied the clear coat to seal. I did two coats allowing dry time in between. The hardware was last and i made sure my mirror was shiny and clean .
Then you have your finished piece. Thank you for reading
