I recently started to redesign my master bedroom . The budget was tight, and I pondered what to do with my nightstands.  The style was great, but the color no longer worked in my new design. The logical thing to do was to paint the furniture, but I did not think it was possible due to it’s finish….But then I discovered the “miracle product” – CHALK PAINT! With chalk paint, you do not have to sand or prime your furniture. The paint sticks to almost any surface.

Here is the breakdown of what I spent on the nightstand redesign:
Americana Chalk Paint $10  (This product is carried at Home Depot, Michael’s and Hobby Lobby)
New Handles $18
Custom Glass Top $25 (Optional, but I love to be able to set down my water glass and not worry about it warping the paint.)
Project Total: $53



What an Amazing Transformation!


I used Americana “LACE” chalk paint for a cream finish.


Here is a shot of the glass top. It adds some major sophistication!


$3 Drawer pulls from The Home Depot.


Once modern, this nightstand now boasts a vintage feel.
