My french provincial dresser found its soul mate!!

Yes that's right...I happened to find the exact matching night stand for my French Provincial Dresser . 
I am beyond pumped!! I scored it on craigslist for 10.00!! I considered doing the two toned look on it so it would perfectly match the dresser but matchy matchy is SO tacky tacky and I wanted something a little fun and sassy! I recently refinished a nightstand for my hubby's side of the bed...check it out here and this loverly lady will be on MY side of the bed. I very stupidly didn't take a before picture but it was the style that you all have cemented into your worst nightmares...beige with gold trim! GAH! Anyways here she is all gussied up and I think MUCH better!

That last photo is of my adorable baby girl who is almost 9 months! Wow how time flies. Anyways back to the nightand...
I sanded lightly all over with my trusty palm sander, then I painted two coats of a creamy white oops paint, distressed her, and then glazed over the distressing. I then painted the inside and outside of the drawer in a bright peacock blue color, and spray painted the hardwear charcoal gray. I J'adore her!! She will make my new bright yellow lamp look even more amazing! Oh I didn't show you guys my yellow lamps yet? Next post!

  1. first of all your little girl is ADORABLE!
    love the nightstand, especially the color you chose for the drawers.

  2. I've done simlar pieces - I love the curvy legs!

    And your little one with the big old dimples is a doll!

  3. Love what you have done with this nightstand. So cute!!!

  4. Beautiful!!...shhh I have a french prov set(nightstand, dresser, vanity/desk) that I need to paint...its still the horrid beige with gold trim..eeak. The enamel paint looks like quite a pain to remove so maybe I will just sand it a bit and paint it up.

  5. Is this what it felt like when Alice looked at herself in the looking glass? Weird....
    Anyways, hello from the other Fabulously Flawed!

  6. Wow, what's the chance you would score the match at another place?! And your daughter is so freakin cute!

  7. Too funny. I only remember half the time to take pics and the other aslf I've already sanded the piece prior to painting. At least then the before pic is truly hideous. Great piece and lucky score! Turned out brag-worthy!

  8. Love it!! :) Great job Kelsey!

  9. Love the curvy lines & shabaliciousness of that dresser! I can't wait for the yard sale season to start - I'm dying to try my hand at furniture resuscitation! Thanks for sharing :)

  11. very cute! I actually have the entire furniture suit that matches that night stand. It has a super cute vanity. I just refinished it for my daughters room.
