Thrifty Find Shabby Black Nightstand

By Vanessa, Owner at Vintage Soul in Ridgefield, WA.

I picked up this cute nightstand at a local thrift store. I was preparing for a show and really needed a good stacking filler piece and a quick flip. She fit the bill. I used Dixie Belle Paint Company Midnight Sky, distressed the edges, and finished with the Dixie Belle Paint Company clear wax. The real story to this little lady came to pass when I did the photo shoot. I got her all staged, knelt down to take my shots, took one photo and then the wind whipped, shifted the sign forward, and knocked my beautiful vase of faux flowers to the ground. It all happened in slow motion. I was so bummed, but at least I got one great photo before disaster struck. These things happen, you just gotta roll with the punches sometimes. But I will forever remember this piece as the one that was last graced with the presence of my favorite faux flower vase staging item.
