Original Art on Homemade Chalk Painted and Glazed Nightstands


Found these treasures on a half-off day at the Salvation Army Thrift Store for $35/pair. Decided to try the DIY Chalk paint recipe and painted, glazed and then hand painted two original pieces of art on the top of each.

Then added hand-written script excerpts from a French Love Poem to the drawer fronts.

I then coated with a satin-finish top coat for protection and durability.

Final step was updating the brass hardware with some silver spray paint and black glaze for an aged patina.

Total finished cost - $50. Who says art has to be on the walls?

Have a question about this project?
