Dog Bed Nightstand
My daughter-in-law has this nightstand that she no longer wanted...of course I brought it home! It sat in the garage along with all my other upcoming projects for several months....and then! Inspiration struck! It would make a really cute dog bed nightstand.
Here she is...originally there was a door with glass in it, but my dil has taken that off and refinished it like this. I knew this look wouldn’t work for what I had in mind. So, I gave it a light sanding to rough up the old finish.
Next up was the base coat. I chose this sunny yellow because I had the perfect grey chalk paint to use with it!
After the base coat was dry, I carted it in to get the chalk painting done. I used this Heritage Collection (Cobblestone) all in one chalk paint.
She was a little plain after I got the chalk paint done, so I grabbed my stencils and some yellow chalk paint. I put this cute little pattern all around the top. Once that dries, I distressed the top every so lightly with a fine grit sand paper.
I wanted the detail to pop! So, I dry brushed some yellow chalk paint on to make the details a little more eye catching.
I added contact paper to the inside back to make it easy to wipe down. Let’s face it, snotty noses leave a little mess. lol
I purchased a cute little dog bed to put inside, and it is ready for a new home!
