A couple weeks ago we took an in depth view of how to take apart an antique vanity so you can use the ends as nightstands. While this particular vanity was easy to take apart, it wasn’t so easy to repair. It takes quite a lot of ingenuity and many many layers of wood fill to get it right! But if you want to try it out on your own see our tips and tricks HERE.
Here is another look at what these looked like BEFORE
Well now you all get to see how those vanity ends turned out! If you follow us on Facebook you may have already seen them revealed since we were so excited to share them! But if not, here they are in all their beautiful glory!
We used a new color that we found from the Fusion Mineral Paint line. It is called “Lamp white“, it truly is a white color, but has the slightest undertone of a light gray to it. It is a beautiful hue and was fun to try a new color!
We didn’t stop there though, we wanted to emulate the look that Kristen did for her nightstands in her new bedroom (see that post HERE). For her nightstands she lined the inside of each drawer with floral paper for a fun surprise and pop of color when you open the drawer.
New oil rubbed bronze knobs were also added for each drawer. They needed to be very small for these drawers otherwise they looked really strangely large. But luckily we had these little ones in stock! We really liked the contrast of the dark knobs with the light color.
Matching antique nightstands like these are not very easy to find, especially ones with such character! The details on the drawer fronts and the beautiful turned legs are swoon worthy for sure. We definitely enjoy antique furniture and the special character they have. You just don’t find furniture made like this nowadays! Especially solid wood ones too. And even if you don’t have a large bedroom (Like Kristen) nightstands like these STILL work!
