SHABBY CHIC NIGHTSTANDS MAKEOVER - dark wood to bright white with ASCP

I found a quirky little pair of
nightstands at the secondhand
store. I brought them home to
change them from dark wood
to bright white. Keep reading
to see the dramatic 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 edge distressed with a 220 grit sand paper and clear waxed with Annie Sloan.
