A Pair of White Nights

By Michelle Gabbard at Gravity Hill Furnishings in Mooresville, IN.

I deconstructed a vintage vanity to create a pair of matching nightstands. I removed the mirror, support below and the tabletop area that joined the two pieces together. I filled in the holes on the sides that were left after removing the bolts with wood putty. I allowed the putty to dry and and sanded it smooth. I also needed to remove the veneer from the tops as it was lifting badly in several areas. I primed the pieces with BIN shellac, sprayed with a Wagner Flexio sprayer. I mixed equal parts of Antiqe White and Snow White Milk Paints and sprayed the pieces with my Wagner Flexio sprayer. I also added stencil detail to the sides of the drawers in the same color. The drawers are lined with a peel and stick wallpaper for a beautiful pop of color.
