Nightstand Makeover and An Announcement

Recently I was contacted about the opportunity to be a vendor at an upcoming event. 
 
I'll be packing up and attending the Carlisle Country Craft and Old-fashioned Market Mercantile. 
I'll be bringing lots of the items that I sell in my etsy shop simplychictreasures.  Plus, I will hopefully have some furniture pieces for sale. 
 
If you are going to be in the area on August 23rd or 24th, consider joining us.  It should be lots of fun!

And now the nightstand makeover!
 
Last Saturday I attended a yard sale at the senior's appartments where my husband's grandmother lives.   There was one room and it was filled to the brim with old ladies buying each other's old stuff.  I picked up this nightstand among other things.  I knew I wanted to do something bright and cheery with it. 
 
 
 
Here it is after three coats of paint. 
 


I used the new Americana Chalky Finish Paint.  I have to say that it's really great stuff!  It's nice and thick and has a smoother finish without having to lightly sand it after like you do with the cece Caldwell paint. 

The damask print you see in it above is removable! 
 
See!  That way whoever buys it can leave it plain or add their own pattern that matches their d├ęcor. 
 
The hardware was lightly spray painted black.  I love the contrast against the teal blue.
 
And look there's even more damask in the drawer!  Again, it's fully removable in case they hate damask.
