Makeover Night Stands

I wanted to share with you a custom paint job and I have to say it was so much fun to change up these dull, dark brown night stands. I used two of Le Craie Maison Blanche colors, Franciscan Grey and Sliver Mink. These colors complement each other beautifully. I didn't take a before picture, but trust me when I say these were boring dark brown pieces.

The Sliver Mink I added onto the drawers and the Franciscan Grey to the top, sides and bottom of this lovely piece.
I distressed the drawers and every groove on these pieces. 
I didn't replace the handles and once I painted them I gave them a light distress. 
Some more distress goodness

I don't have a favorite paint brand and I chose a paint based on the color. I have used ASCP, Le Craie Maison Blanche, and homemade chalk paint. I love them all and I recommended any of these wonderful brands. However I also plan on using Miss Mustard Seed, Sweet Pickin milk paints, and American Paint Company. But these products are not available to me locally and I would have to order them online. I am a very visual person and I'm not sure about the other colors. Seeing a color on the internet can be a hit or miss and this is why I have not purchased any of these brands. If you have used any of these brands and have a favorite color please leave me a comment below. I do know Miss Mustard seed's and Le Craie Maison Blanche wax are amazing. They are soft and buttery and leaves your pieces feeling smooth.

Candy Eye

Happy Monday! 

Today I wanted share with you my visit to my favorite place, The Stables in Lake Alfred, Fl. I will warn you there are a lot of pictures. 

I love these Halloween decor.

I really want to make this. 

Sweet for a child.

The Stable is such a beautiful and peaceful place to visit. The tea room is delightful and the staff are great. What pieces did you love? I personally love the ornate green mirror and the witch. I appreciate you stopping by and I will see you in a couple of days.

Vintage Rocking Chair

I came across this vintage rocker and I knew right away what I wanted to do with it. I painted the rocker in Colette by Maison Blanche and distressed it. This piece turned out beautiful. This is one of my favorite colors and can go for either a male or female.

Give this color a try, you are sure to love it. I loved that you stopped by and I will be posting again on Friday. Have a great day.
