This hot pink night stand makeover shows you how to go from drab to fab!
A few months ago my brother-in-law gave me some furniture: two night stands and a desk. I’d been looking for a night stand/side table for A’s room for some time now. So, I decided to dress this one up a bit. I wanted to bring a pop of color to her room as well.
Perfect! Free furniture is my favorite.
I was especially “pinspired” to create some hot pink furniture by this photo on Pinterest. Love the turquoise and pink. :
Here’s the tutorial I used to paint the furniture. I followed it pretty closely.
Some of my pics of the process:
|The before picture.|
|I removed all of the hardware. Super easy.|
|Sanding with my new handy dandy sander. Love this thing! (Some beginner’s learning curve created some circles on top, but you can’t see them now, thankfully!)|
|Priming. I used two coats of primer.|
|This stuff works great!! Zinsser Cover Stain Primer.|
|All primed and ready to be painted! I filled the holes on the drawer with wood filler.|
|I’m so pleased with the final product!|
I used the paint color Grand Hotel Geranium Pink by Valspar (Lowe’s). I love the name and the color!
The drawer pull is from Hobby Lobby. And I just happened to have this basket and it fits perfectly. The basket was once a drawer in our old house before we renovated it. The previous owner ripped out the drawers in the kitchen and replaced them with baskets. It’s kind of a cute idea, but it did not work! I’ve been hanging on to them just waiting for the right place to put them. And voila! I think it looks so cute in her night stand, and kind of keeps her books in one place.
