Ornate Nightstand in Robin’s Egg Blue & Black

Robin's Egg & Black Nightstand - Before & AfterThis ornate nightstand is painted, glazed and distressed in two colors. Robin’s Egg Blue covers the drawers, sides, and molding, with Black Glaze accenting details areas. The top and bottom are painted Black, with white primer popping through the distressing.

The original pull for the top drawer had been replaced by a knob by the time I purchased it. I replaced it with a vintage pull that fit the style better, and spray painted it and the bottom drawer pull black.

This nightstand was part of a 70’s vintage bedroom set I recently purchased, with a matching ornate dresser and matching mirrors.White-SPACERobin's Egg & Black Nightstand
