I got this night stand from Gently Used (actually got a pair of them but someone bought one before I could even clean it up!)
So here's the before:


Close up of drawers:

I'll try to get a picture in better light tomorrow.
The paint is Heirloom White with Golden Oak stain over it.
The drawers are decoupaged out of scrapbooking paper.
I'm still debating if I should paint the drawer pulls...any suggestions?

Edit to add better picture of drawers:

Hi, I just saw your comment on Funky Junk Interiors, and thought I would pop over.
I LOVE this nightstand transformation... wow. I wish I was creative and crafty!
I'm going to follow... good luck with your blog! :)

Katy... painting the handles, I could go either way. They look great the way they are, but could also see them painted. hmmm not much help, am I?
I am featuring your blog tomorrow! I hope I can send some traffic your way.

Found you from Gail's post today (repurposedlife). That is gorgeous! Nice work.

Hi, Gail spoke about you on her blog today. I really love what you do with furniture. The B&W decoupaged paper is so pretty. I will have to give that a try!

This is so pretty. I love it the way it is but if you were to paint the hardware I think it could be pretty in black. I also paint furniture but mine is pretty wild and crazy. I have been thinking of doing some "dialed back" pieces and I have copied and pasted your image into my inspiration folder. Thank you for sharing. You have a definite flair.

Just found you today, Gail at Repurposed Life said to hop on over and take a look at the fabulous job you do on furniture. She was right. This nightstand is beautiful. Can't wait to see more. said...

I love your nightstand! I found you from Gail's site. Your comment about your shop being in a dangerous place made me laugh - I can totally relate! I'm new to blogland myself. Feel free to come by a take a look! said...

Yay! it worked, I hopped over from Kimba's place!
I can't believe you were able to understand my jibberish!
you go girl!

Love that! I'd love to know what that scrapbook paper is. Do you know what line it's from?

About the knobs, what if you painted them a muted turquoise?

Very nice. Funny I have a pair in my garage just like this awaiting transformation. They are for a teens room and I am planning on painting the handles PURPLE. I'll let you know how it turns out. I am stealing your idea about decopauging the drawer fronts. Well done!!
