French Linen night stand

This is going to be a short and sweet post!
This past August, I posted about this side table that I painted in Annie Sloan's French Linen.

I loved the color so much, and had the whole piece painted in just a sample pot's worth of paint.
At the Heritage Holiday Faire, there was a vendor selling ASCP, so I picked up a quart of it while I was there.

It's such a stately gray.  
I love the undertones of beige in it.
I knew it would be a great color for this night stand I picked up.

It started out in a very rough state.


 Lots of high gloss, auburn paint that had either started to be stripped, or was a bad distressing job.

The hardware was great, and I loved the simple lines and turned feet. 
It was also in really great shape.

Once it was painted, I aged it slightly with some clear and dark wax, and added a couple nail heads to the front.


It felt a little flat with just the French Linen, so I highlighted some of the lines with Old White.
I love the makeover!

I have been on a buying frenzy recently, and so I snapped both of these pics pretty quickly with my phone.  My apologies for not having some better shots to share.

Lots more to share soon- a new buffet, a cabinet / mini wardrobe, a small hutch and an upholstery job are all waiting in the wings for me right now!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
