Refurbishing Your Nightstands
Nightstands make a great addition to bedroom decor and located on either both or one side of the bed. Refurbishing nightstands is an easy DIY project that you can do in just one day. To get started with spray painting, the first piece of advice that you will need to follow is actually reading the directions on the bottle before you make a purchase. On the label, it will indicate if the spray paint is for finished woods or plastics. You can tell if it is going to work by doing a test sample on the underside of the nightstand. If the paint doesn’t dry correctly, then you know it’s time to take it back to the store to get your money back. One other option to draw the eye to your bedroom nightstands is to use gold or silver metallic paint. This works best for interior design based on palatial French, Indian, or Persian themes. Paired with the right wall colors and fabrics, this can turn your ho-hum plywood furniture into something glamorous.
Finally, the spray paint option that is becoming popular in children’s bedrooms is the chalkboard maker. This is especially popular for furniture that is on its way to the charity shop. It definitely creates something fun that gets the kids excited about having their room decorated. Plus, kids love the idea of doing a rare activity like writing on furniture. In the end, the most successful projects for bedroom nightstands are ones done carefully. No matter what you use to change the surfaces, it is important that you do a paint test on the underside of the nightstands before you attempt to cover them completely.
