Urbane Bronze Nightstands

I hope you are all having an amazing Holiday week! I am having the best time in the mitten catching up with family and friends & celebrating Christmas with the ones we love. We have been so busy since we have been on vacation that I feel like I don’t even have time to sit on my computer besides late at night when I should be catching up on sleep. But I can’t stay away from you guys… ever, so I will make the time no matter what to talk, share and inspire you even when I’m busy and needing sleep.. because I love you 😉 Plus I have some awesome news to share with you this week so stay tuned for that!! Today I wanted to share with you the lovely nightstands in our master bedroom that I painted….

& the nightstands before…

Both of these pieces were bought at a local antique store near our house, but at different times. I wanted two different nightstands that didn’t match, but I wanted to make them uniform with the color and finish. I love how this pair works in our room…

The color I used for these nightstands is Urbane Bronze by Sherwinn Williams. It’s a beautiful warm brown with gray undertones. I used Annie Sloans dark wax over these pieces to seal them. I love how the distressing and dark wax accented the beautiful color by Sherwinn Williams perfectly to give it that rustic touch…

The knobs on this piece were wooden {as seen in the before picture} & I used Rub n’ buff to make them the gold finish. You can see more on that {here}.

Seriously this is one of my new favorite colors.. I’m sure you will see many more pieces {maybe rooms} in this color. It’s not brown, it’s not gray, it’s not black, it’s Urbane Bronze & I am officially obsessed! What do you think of this color & the nightstands? Have you used this color before? Share your thoughts in the comments below, Facebook me, Tweet me, Instagram me, & as always… Talk to you soon!

    The nightstands look great. We are refinishing a coffee table that I built a few years ago. Sara would love this look. What steps did you use to achieve this finish? Did you apply something before painting to help with the sand off look or use a color under the bronze paint? Also does anything go over the wax?
    Thank you!!

  9. Was there a video with this? Did you distress before or after the wax. Love this look, I’m in the process of doing a bit of a re-creation!
