This headboard/ nightstand was my first semi-go at it. A friend of mine was wanting a headboard and nightstand for her son. After coming across both during one of my latest hunting expeditions; I approached her and told her to pick the colors and finish and I would do them and then if she liked the result she would have first dibs before I listed them for sale. Here are some before and afters...
|Before: Early 80's style headboard. |
Solid but out dated.
|I removed the accordion like detail to create |
a cleaner look. I also painted and glazed
|I love the cleaner, simpler look. Still has nice trim work. Just the right amount of detail for a little boy.|
|Look carefully behind the lamps. This was |
a nightstand I picked up that someone tried to
refinish. Jaime to the rescue!
|After: Painted, glazed, reassembled and|
good as new!
|It is a nice, simple, functional nightstand and with the enamel paint will easily hold hp in an 8 year olds room!|
|The set all completed!|
P.S. My friend loves them and is going to purchase both.
