Night Stand Progress

I'm getting closer! The primer is done...two coats. I used a sponge instead of a bristle brush. I may brush the final coat.....We'll see.

I am letting this dry over night then I will do a light sanding with some 220 grit paper and then ..eeeeeee....apply the burnt peanut red!

As you can see, the primer looks a little pink.
Here it is next to the final color. It's gonna be awesome!!!!
My spackle technique needs some serious work and I think I kept the drips to a minimum. I just hope there is no green showing when I'm done. LOL
I think I will be picking out a new knob too. The little white ceramic is nice, but I am leaning toward a brushed/antiques nickle cup pull.

Something about the size of the fourth one from the top in the middle but more antiquing looking like the very top one. I'll take the drawer with me to the hardware store and see what looks the best.

Oh noooo, That means I have to drill two new holes....... 
 oh hhuuussssbbbaannndddddd.......

Althooooooooooo, I really like this!! Tough call!

I should have my night stand done by Friday!!!!


  1. Can't wait to see it finished! You are doing a fantastic job!

  2. It's coming along. I like the drawer pulls in the second picture.
