Smokey Ash French Provincial Nightstands



A few weeks back, I found this pair of French Provincial Nightstands at the Flea Market.  
Before:
The nightstands are well made by Stanley Furniture Co., but they needed a little care to be pretty again.  I pulled out Smokey Ash by  The Urban Rooster and got to town painting.  After two quick coats of paint, I sealed the nightstand with Tung oil and dark wax.  This grey color is a very pretty and warm and I love it. 

My pictures are not that great since I had a bout 5 mins to take them before the pair was picked up.  A buyer came for a dresser and wanted to know if I had any nightstands, so I showed her this pair and she bought them.

  7. Isn't that just the best when you sell more than planned to one client - congrats! It still never ceases to amaze me how a piece of furniture can be completely transformed from ugly to drop dead gorgeous with skilled hands a can of paint. Gorgeous!
