My auto mechanic, Paul, is an avid yard saler and collector, so I always love going to his shop and checking out his finds. Last time I visited, I found this little, 3-drawer night stand. It was pretty ugly, but I liked how narrow it was and figured it would be functional for someone who lacked space.
With a little wall paper and Chalk Paint, I turned this homely night stand into a fresh, beachy piece of furniture.
I found three rolls of vintage, textured wall paper at a yard sale recently and I decided this would be the perfect project for it.
I traced each drawer onto the wall paper and then cut them out. I used Mod Podge to stick the wall paper to the drawer fronts. I am always impressed with the adhering power of Mod Podge!
I used Duck Egg Blue Chalk Paint on the dresser and I applied it with a dry brush to the drawer fronts so the white wall paper showed through the blue. For the finishing touch, I added some darling, sea star knobs that we sell at Loot.
