I sanded it down and sprayed a primer on it. I then painted it a white called Snowy Mount from Olympic Paints in a Satin. The drawer I painted Oxford Pink from the Eddie Bauer line in Valspar Satin.
After...I wanted to be creative in a positive way and support a cause, so I decided to go with a pink ribbon stencil effect rather than chevron or stripes. Here's to the strong and the fighters!
The Process..After the first coats of the white and pink I then ruffed up the entire night stand with sand paper. Hand painted the breast cancer ribbon on the top and bottom of the night stand in Oxford pink first. After that had dried I went around the edges with Barely Pink from the PANTONE collection in Valspar/Satin. I then sanded over them for that aged feel. I also painted a ribbon inside the drawer. When that was done I then went over the entire night stand with a Minwax water based coffee tint stain, coated it with Cabot's Semi-Gloss Polyurethane and added a beautiful knob.
Hand painted pink ribbons for a stencil effect.
Until Next Time...
