Maple Nightstand: Before and After

Hi Friends!!

Here's a quick before and after on a nightstand I recently picked up. I went to see a "dresser and nighstand" set on Craigslist and I was pretty sure I would buy the set, but upon inspection of the dresser, it was bad. I wouldn't have paid $10, much less the $40 they were asking. But I did get this nighstand...actually this is a photo from Craigslist of a nightstand with a similar finish, as I forgot to take a before photo (again!).

I had this great color on hand (Benjamin Moore: Mount Saint Anne) and after a coat of oil-based primer, painted 2 coats, distressed and sealed with clear wax. I LOVE this color!

Have a great day!
