Night Stand Project

This is my life right now:

Chase around an almost 1 year old.
Continue the never-ending process of painting our upstairs trim white.
Regular busy-ness of life.
Oh, and then another DIY project that's not necessarily a necessity...
but I decide to do it anyway, even though I have million other things I should finish first.

Yup. That sums up this project.

It's a nightstand that my Grandpa actually made for me probably 10+ years ago.
I decided I wanted Gavin to have it! 

In my opinion, it doesn't get better than having things of sentimental value. For Gavin, a nightstand made by his Great-Grandpa is pretty special.

As you can see in the before picture, it was painted all white. Which I loved...
I did Gavin's dresser remodel.
Then I realized... I wanted it to match his dresser.

SO... time for a little DIY project.

I had all of my supplies left over from the dresser remodel, so it made this entire project that much easier.
(electric sander, sandpaper, Rustoleum off white spray paint, Rustoleum oil rubbed bronze spray paint, clear-top coat, stain)

Here's How I Did It:

I sanded the top down to the bare wood.

I spray painted the entire nightstand, except for the top (which would be getting stained) so it was the same off white color as his dresser.

Then I stained the top of the night stand with the same stain as from the dresser.

I also used my Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint to spray paint the little drawer knob.

I literally did this entire project in about 1 day.
I let it dry and cure for a couple days before bringing it back into his room.

Cheers to another unnecessary, but totally worth it DIY project!!
