Stenciled Nightstand

I feel like I have abandoned my blog, & It’s only been a week
since I have last posted. We are away for the holidays visiting
family & friends in Michigan & I am having the time of my life…
Everyday is filled with fun things with family & friends
& every time we go home I am filled with so
much joy knowing what an awesome family I have & how awesome
the family is that I married in to is… we are very blessed.
We were way too spoiled by our families so traveling back to NC with all of our
gifts in the Jeep is going to be interesting & fun haha.
I hope that you had a very Merry Christmas!!

I wanted to show you a cute little nightstand that I was working
on when we left for Michigan using a stencil from
Cutting Edge Stencils. It is not quite finished yet,
but I wanted to show you the progress so far….



I love the accented top with the stenciling.
I used the casablanca stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils.

I used the paint roller from Cutting edge stencils to
paint over the stencil & it was so easy & clean to
work with. I used a sponge before, but the roller
was much easier to work with.

I know I will get asked what the blue
color I used is, but unfortunately ร‚ย the can was not labeled.
The accent gray color is called filtered shade by Valspar.

This piece is actually not finished yet. There are a few
minor details I need to work on, like the hardware.
But I love it so far & I love the detail of the stencil.

What do you guys think about this lovely little nightstand
so far? I would love to hear what you think!
I will keep you updated on the changes I make to the
nightstand as soon as they are done.

I hope you all had a great Christmas,
& again I’m sorry about my lack of posts while
we were home for the holidays…
I know that you all are very understanding!
I will be back tomorrow with my Birchbox post &
later this week I will be sharing my favorite posts of
2011 with you… Stay Tuned!!

  1. Such a pretty piece of furniture! It’s crazy to think that someone actually owned this piece before it was painted. You made such a great transformation like always!
    On a side note, I’m not getting your posts on my feed page. I un-followed you and then followed you again and your posts still aren’t showing up. Any suggestions as to what is wrong?

    • Thank you so much Emily!!! That means a lot to me :) I’m glad I shared my progress…

      I am so sad you are not getting my posts in your feed.. are you on blogger? I will talk to my host about the issue!! Thank you so much for telling me!

  2. Wow, what an amzing transformation! I LOVE it!

  4. It looks fantastic! Funny too that I was going to ask you about the shade of blue you used. I love it. Reminds me a lot of the Blue Ocean Breeze from Krylon. Great job!

  5. It looks great! I’ve been wanting to try some stencils, thanks for sharing your source. I think with some great knobs this piece will be finished off. Great job!

  6. I’ve been following your blog for a while now and I love your transformations. This one is especially cute, I really like the two colours together, great job xx

  7. Beautiful transformation. Love the color you chose. I can hardly believe it’s the same piece.

  8. Wow! What a transformation! You’ve made the cabinet change centuries with a lick of paint!

  9. I love this! You know, I never thought I’d like that turquoise/eggshell blue on furniture but the more I see it, the more I am beginning to like the clean fresh look of it. The pattern on the top helps break up all that blue and I think it adds so much interest to the piece. Thanks for sharing!

  10. That turned out so great. I love the colors.

  11. What a great transformation. Looks absolutely fantastic with that fun aqua color!
