Sleek to Rustic

Yesterday I shared that we are slowly switching our black furniture out of our master bedroom.  You can read the post here.

What to do with perfectly fine furniture?

You beat the heck out of it with a power sander, of course.

The furniture was originally purchased unfinished.  We stained it and used it in the country looking style.  Once we tired of that, we painted everything black.

We completely covered the furniture with black paint – giving it a sleek, sorta modern vibe.

Fortunately, when I attacked everything with the sander, the stain came through.  Resulting in a Rustic finish.

Then I used a stain, to hand finish the piece.

And now, here are the finished night stands.  They are available.  The armoire has already found a new home.

Have a great day.  Do something creative today – anything.

Found your blog on houseblogging.com- those stands look GREAT! Love them. I'm sure they'll find a good home in no time (if only I were anywhere close to actually decorating in my project...!)
