Sweet Spring Nightstand

Do you remember the beautiful twin beds I showed you last week? Well, Amy also had a great little nightstand that she knew would work perfectly between her daughters’ beds. It had been painted white years ago, but definitely needed to be refreshed.


As I always do, I started by cleaning the furniture with mineral spirits. I painted several coats of Annie Sloan Old White on the body and Antoinette pink on the drawer fronts. I distressed the edges and waxed everything with Annie Sloan Clear Wax.


Did you know that you can get old paint off hardware by soaking them in a crockpot? It still takes some scrubbing but the old paint comes off pretty easily.


Having clean hardware allowed me to repaint them easily. This time I used Rustoleum Heirloom White spray paint.


I finished the project off with some sweet paper to line the drawers. I love having a happy surprise in drawers!

You will also see that I painted a mason jar in the same Antoinette pink. I know the mason jar trend might be on it’s way out, but I still do love them dearly – especially my vintage blue ones! I now have a few in different colors to trade out flowers throughout my home. C’mon Spring!


I think Amy’s daughters will enjoy filling this nightstand with all the treasures that little girls have!

Thank you again, Amy!

  1. I couldn’t love this piece… and this post any more. You know I love the Mason jar + hydrangea combo, too. And the set against the blue wall… it’s just gorgeous!
