I did something the other day that was really hard for me. I painted a piece of furniture white! I know, most people have white furniture in their house and it’s no big deal. But, not this girl. For some reason having white furniture in my own house is scary to me. I guess I figure if you’re going to paint something, why not paint it a pretty color?
But when it came to making over my daughter’s room, I felt like all the colors were getting to be a bit much. I needed some sense of calm in there.
After lots of thinking and trying to work around painting her nightstand white, I painted her nightstand white!
Here’s what the nightstand looked like after its first makeover a couple years ago. It was cute enough, but the yellow was just too much for her new room design. (You can see more of that makeover here.)
So, I sanded down the stencil on the top and painted the whole thing with a few coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Pure White.
And I’m pretty sure I like it now!
I do think it looks nice and it is much more serene looking, but the fact that it’s white is still a little hard for me.
So, I’m curious. Do you like white furniture or are you partial to color, like me?
