I found this French Provincial nightstand while antiquing in North Louisiana. It brings back memories of my childhood since I had a large set of this type bedroom furniture in my teenage years and I saved it for my children to use for a while. The top of the nightstand has the melamine surface so I left that alone since it was in good shape. I painted the rest of it with a white/primer paint. Then I painted the front of the drawers with Sherwin Williams Drizzle made into chalk paint. I painted one area above each drawer with some enamel gold paint. I distressed lightly some of the areas where the original gold was. I love the way the gold looks with the Drizzle color. I put CeCe Caldwell’s clear wax on everything but the top. I replaced the beautiful original hardware on the drawers. My husband replaced the gliders to the drawers since the original ones were messed up. I purchased a drawer track guide kit at a hardware store.
Here is a close up of the finished nightstand. I will put it in my shop today and I don’t think it will be there for long.
