Oak 3-Drawer Nightstand

This item has been sold
There was nothing structurally wrong with this cute little nightstand from Harrison Furniture. It was just the dated finish that needed to be updated. I did that with a warm soft taupe chalk paint.

Chalk paint is not a bandwagon that I jumped on. I know….everyone loves it, and uses it for everything. But I just never quite saw the appeal. It requires a LOT of elbow grease to achieve a nice silky smooth surface. And I can get that same look so much easier with regular ol’ latex paint. And I can spray latex paint, which I can’t do with chalk paint. But then I came across a sprayable chalk paint and I figured I’d give it a shot. I have to say, I love the look. It has a nice silky, yet matte finish, which I echoed with a matte brass on the original hardware. Now it’ll fit into so many different decor styles – shabby chic, farmhouse, eclectic, vintage, coastal…the list goes on and on.

Update: My customer had matte black hardware in their son’s bedroom, so I updated the drawer pulls with matte black paint, which echoes wrought iron. I have to say, I like the piece even better this way!

    Hello Kristen.

    I have a couple Harrison pieces that look just like your before pictures. One of my drawer pulls broke. It looks like you replaced the antique bronze pulls on this piece with gold. I NEED the 3 antique bronze ones to fix and have spares for my 2 dressers. PLEASE help!! Hopefully you still have the ones you took off this piece. Best regards, Wayne Vlasak.
