No. 114 Pair of Coral Nightstands
Happy Tuesday! In sharp contrast to the blessedly cold winter, here is a fresh springy pair of nightstands for you.
A friend mentioned she had a couple of "ugly brown nightstands" she wanted to get rid of, sounds like just my thing...
These got two coats of homemade chalk paint - color matched to Sherwin Williams color of the year, Coral Reef. It is a bright beautiful coral, without being too pink.
A light distressing, and a coat of Fiddes and Sons clear wax. The handles got a little refreshing with Rub n' Buff in Antique Gold.
I sanded the leather tops just like the rest of the piece and it took the paint just fine. Why leather tops??
I was having a little trouble getting the true color to show, this is the best picture of the color, isn't it lovely?
Of course these would be fabulous in a little girls room, but wouldn't they also be super chic in a white space, a bright pop of color to jazz up a living room?
These two are available in the Roots & Wings Etsy Shop!
