SHABBY CHIC NIGHTSTANDS - before and after with legs



 I found a quirky little pair of dark wood nightstands at the second hand store and brought them
home for a makeover. They had handles that went up and down in the very middle of each drawer,
it looked very odd. The white spots on the before photo are the holes from the original handles in
the process of being filled with wood filler.

I painted both in a creamy white mix of ASCP. I added little Queen Anne legs to the fronts and
the back legs are made from simple 2 x 2 lumber. All the legs I use are vintage reclaimed parts.

The nightstands were nicely edge distressed with a 220 grit sand paper and clear waxed.

  2. Wow, the before is quite ugly and you certainly saved a pair and saw the potential. I think the after is gorgeous. Great job. Char
