CUPBOARD WAXING - shabby chic cupboard nightstands

We found a great little pair of bedside tables while we were
second hand shopping recently.

This is one of those deceiving before photos where the items look better then they actually are.
Why doesn't that happen when we want it to?

I removed the hardware and gave them a good cleaning.

The doors have glass inserts which come out very easily making painting
a lot smoother.

I spray painted the handles bright white.

I chose to paint the inside of the cupboard which taught me,
waxing and buffing the inside of cupboards isn't a lot of fun.

The glass insert in the doors have a pretty white boarder detail which accents the handles nicely.

I used old white chalk paint in the sprayer and hand sanded to distress these little gems.

I added a soft rose printed paper for a drawer liner.


Have you stopped into firstfinds hardware store lately?
Here are just some of the items available for your projects.

  1. Let me see your hands! I swear you must have cranks for hands........because that's what you do CRANK IT OUT :) I love the nightstands you can never go wrong with bright white!

  2. You are truly amazing... can I have just a little teeny tiny bit of your energy.

    I ordered a sprayer and I can't wait to start a project with it... like my kitchen cupboards. First I have to find a lot of practice pieces before I tackle that job.

    Great job, they look as gorgeous.

    Hugs, Deb
