A Long Overdue Paint Transformation on a Bedside Stand.


I had planned for at least 15 years to repaint this little stand I use in my guest bedroom. I used Annie Sloan chalk paint (Old White and Scandinavian Pink) I painted it all pink and went over the outside with the Old White, and then distressed it and used the dark wax. Then I decoupaged a flower print from an old Avon book of flowers my sister-in-law gave me probably 25 years ago! I had kept them, waiting to use them on something. Why did I wait so long!? Actually I originally planned to do a mosaic using broken china, on the top. But I was afraid it would be too bumpy to place a lamp on the top. So here is what I did instead. Is anybody body else hooked on Annie Sloan chalk paint like me? I am painting picture frames too. Will post some other stuff too. What do you think of this little stand?
