The beauty started off as a generic prefab night stand discarded during a movers purge. It was a little sad and worn...totally forgot to take a before pic.
Anyways, after a good washing, some TLC, and a few coats of homemade chalk paint in off white this night stand was ready to stand out. I wanted to do another paint stick top but didn't have enough on hand to cover this top. Plan B: fabric.
Fabric remnant from Hobby Lobby, its so cute I'm seriously thinking of buying the bolt. Its a repeating map pattern rather than an actual map so I positioned the remnant based on the pattern rather than the edges of the fabric. Mod Podge was used to adhere to the top then added a couple coats on top of the fabric before sealing the entire piece with lacquer.
Mod Podged some scrap book paper to the bottoms of each drawer to hide stains that wouldn't scrub out. I actually like the extra color opposed to the boring prefab brown they were.
The fun thing about items with drawers is that they make a nifty shelf. This piece sold in a week so its "book shelf" days were short lived.
I'm looking forward to adding this look regularly in my furniture makeovers, seems like an attractive choice to customers.
Have a great week!
