Awesome friends, I am so happy you’re back! Today’s makeover is this super sweet night table I picked up at the thrift store for more than I wanted to spend:
It was $34 with 20% off, so I ended up paying $27. That’s really not bad at all. I’m just cheap.
I decided to pull out a gorgeous color from Dixie Belle’s Moonshine Metallics line for this one, Steel Magnolia:
Did you know that Dixie Belle makes eight beautiful metallic colors? I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
I love love love this color! I started to use this on a piece back in the Fall and changed plans at the last minute. I wish I hadn’t. It is just so dreamy in person!
The original top on this one was a hot mess:
Then after a good clean up, I got right to painting!
The first coat looked terrible, but as you can see below, magic starts to happen with the second coat:
I used a total of three coats for solid coverage.
You can also use a similar regular color like Driftwood as a base coat to make this go further since it is a bit more pricey.
I was amazed at the beautiful finish on it once I was done and because it’s self-sealing, there is no need for a topcoat! I love that!
I first painted the drawer hardware in white for some contrast:
But I didn’t love it at all. I felt it took away from the beautiful finish, so I painted them in the Steel Magnolia also.
So much better! And as you can see, I also lined the drawers.
I did BOSS these first, only because I used fabric with a white background and I wanted the white to stay a nice, bright white:
You could use just plain white paint also.
You can see how I line drawers with fabric in the video below:
If you have trouble viewing, find it on YouTube HERE.
Those two mirrored wall hangings came from HomeGoods a couple of years back, and those pretty blooms came from JoAnns just a couple of weeks ago. I redid the chair HERE if you missed it!
I am so in love with this color!
All of the Moonshine Metallic colors are available in my shop. As always, use the code FREESHIP50 at checkout for free shipping on orders over $50 and $8 flat rate shipping on all orders under $50.
Another one done! I’m plowing right through this haul woohoo!!
If there’s anything you missed, you can catch up below:
Here’s another night table that I redid using a metallic finish, however things went south and I had to find a plan B!
Check out this flopped night table HERE!
I’ll meet ya’ll back here on Tuesday with this set of two night tables I scored for $10 each out of the back of the thrift store!
I’ll also have a brand new video showing how I chalk paint furniture!
