For the last year, at least, I have been talking about how I want and plan to paint my guest bedroom set. They are dark cherry-ish wood and consist of a queen sleigh bed headboard and footboard, a six drawer dresser, two matching nightstands, and a television armoire.
Last weekend I decided I needed to finally get started.
I purchased my paint a few weeks ago, so it was waiting patiently for me to open it up and paint away. I chose a soft white. White paint color is more difficult to pick out than I thought and I'm not a very quick decision maker...you could probably imagine that this was not the quickest trip to the local home improvement store.
I decided to start small with one of the nightstands.
This is the nightstand. Since I've chosen to paint all the bedroom furniture a shade of white...and the original color is the dark cherry, a belt sander was and will be absolutely necessary. (Note: that is not a rat in the pic...that's our Chihuahua, Harley.)
Here's a front view of the nightstand. The color is so dark! Eww!
And viola! A belt sander, a little bit of paint, one paint brush, and an hour later...
a new to me nightstand.
I can't wait to get all the bedroom furniture done! I'll keep you posted! (pun intended)
Keep on Keepin on.
