Matching Nightstands

So I sold the Two-Toned Freebie Dresser the other day, and the girl who came by to buy it brought me two nightstands to refinish to match.  Here’s a look at their before.

And here’s how they finished up today:

P1030743

They really do look like they were destined to be a matched set, don’t they?

  8. Hi Ann Marie ~ just beautiful. Would you mind sharing with me what paints/stains you used for this? I'm thinking of re-doing my own dining table (as if I really have the time) but not sure what paint to use. I normally use just shabby chic colors on all the furniture I do - never tried the browns ~ any advice???

    Thanks.

  9. Norma - The off-white paint on the base was a mistint, so I don't know the specific color. The top I stripped down to the bare wood and stained using Minwax Gel Stain in Mahogany (2 coats.) Hope that helps! Good luck!

  12. Oh no. OH NO!!! I've been trying to avoid redoing my nightstands and bedroom furniture. Seriously pondering and completely dismissing because I don't want to do it anymore.
    But now...oh no.

  14. Gorgeous! I love the contrast of the creamy white against the dark tops. Great work!

  15. Oh my, I absolutely LOVE that!!! Ya know, we bought our cherry furniture about 7 yrs ago. And it's super pretty (and cost a pretty penny) but quite honestly I'm kinda sick of all the dark wood. I LOVE the white with the dark top!!! Hmmm....maybe another home dec project in the works at this house!

  16. thought I was following you, but I guess not!

    Love the two-toned look! Can I ask what color stain you used for the top? Looks great.

    And AHHHH! You spell your name the same way that I do, it's very hard to find other "Ann Marie's" with a space, no dashes, both capitalized, without the dreaded e at the end! I think you know where I'm coming from, haha...

  17. I have solid oak bedroom furniture and plan to redo it. I like the white and dark top that you did on this furniture. It looks amazing. So tell me what color you used for the base (white/cream/?????) And what did you do to the tops to get that finish it is "AMAZING". I was going to go all white or cream with mine but not know I love the color combination that you have on your work. Please get back with me on this. You can email me at: scarter67@comcast.net or call me on my cell# 912-604-5296. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Cheers!

  26. Yes. I like very much. Would love to see you link up sometime at my place on Mondays. Love me some furniture goodness.

    peace.
