I mixed 2 different paints that I already had to create this fun mint green color. Then I took my Plaster of Paris and warm water stirred it together. Once it became a creamy mixture, I added my paint to it.
Curbside Find Nightstand Poetic DIY Furniture Makeover
I am super excited to be sharing this DIY furniture project with you today!
I found this sturdy nightstand on the curb across the street from my home.
It was found as you see pictured below. It was missing a drawer pull and was covered in stickers and marker. I am guessing this nightstand once belonged to a kid or a teen.
It wasn’t super beat up so I decided to make it a fun furniture flip project.
I had extra drawer pulls from a previous project, so I decided it would be perfect for this project. My cat Grace decided it was important for her to help me while I did this step. She is a cute addition to this nightstand.
I used painters tape and spray adhesive to secure the French poem stencil so it wouldn’t shift when I added paint to it.
I decided to use this french script fabric and mod podge to line the bottom of the inside of the drawer to give it another custom touch.
I did this process in layers. I would allow the paint to dry before adding the next layer of paint.
I still had to go back with a smaller brush to clean up the writing and make it fully legible
Here is the AFTER of this fun DIY furniture flip! I wanted to keep this makeover simple yet elegant. I planned on selling it after I was done with this makeover, so I wanted it to fit in many different types of spaces.
