A Bohemian Make over

This nightstand was in a very sad condition, I actually forgot to take a before photo, this photo is already after sanding and cleaning.

It has some cute legs but the wood veneer made it look cheap. It was also in need of a general tender loving care. We, of course, did not want to bring it back to its old glory but give it some new glory instead.

Taping the stripes off was the annoying bit, but it saved me time with painting.

While the outside became purple, the inside got a terracotta orange makeover for some color contrast.

The colors of the paint were chosen according to this beautiful tile patterned fabric.

All the veneer disappeared under this beautiful fabric.

What a difference, right?

The fabric got mod podge for fabric to make it dirt resistant. The beautiful porcelain handles we got in a shop in New Orleans, without plans, I just loved them so much and they turned out to be the perfect match.

I'm in love with it, if I had the space I would keep it :D

We have a big mid century cabinet which we are now thinking to give a similar make over.

The satisfaction of making these ugly pieces pretty is huge :)
The nightstand is available at StarHomeStudio among other one of a kind furniture pieces.
