painted gray nightstand
After posting about my mini-bedroom makeover a few weeks ago, I kept looking at the pictures and realized that those cream colored nightstands were making me crazy.
I knew I wanted to go dark with them because the walls are going to be going light.
I found a shade of chalk paint called Charcol I liked by Martha Stewart. For $7 at Micheal’s the price was right. I just sealed it like regular chalk paint.
I wasn’t sure how I felt about it at first,because I wasn’t used to the dark color, but now I LOVE them! Three cheers for a dark gray nightstand!
The lighting was a little off, so the pictures came out a little dark, but I can’t tell you how dramatically awesome it looks.
I might still brighten up the brass handles, but for now I am much happier.
I’ve noticed my style leaning towards adding color and drama lately,and I am totally happy with that.
After I took the picture I realized my super ugly,huge alarm clock was still on the nightstand. I wish everything on my nightstand could be pretty, but I need something with numbers I can see at 3 in the morning. Real life,I know right?
So I took the liberty of playing around a bit with the magic of Picmonkey.
Here’s what it looks like if I wasn’t blind in the middle of the night. 🙂

Great choice of color room looks great. How did you seal the paint? I have never used chalk paint I keep ready about it and love the results.
Just with wax. It doesn’t get a ton of high use like a kitchen table so I’m not worried about wear and tear.
What a change, now your bed linen looks gray instead of lavendar (is that what they should be?) and I think the handles look great dark – good job.
Looks great! Love the updated Jennifer!
I generally like cream and didn’t mind the nightstand’s “before” state. BUT when I saw it in its new color, I gasped! It’s perfect with the bedding and room. Good call!
It’s really pretty. It has a richness that pops against the wall color. Great job.
I love it…you can see the curves even better with the darker paint. Great color!
