Daisy, The Vintage Waterfall Nightstand

Daisy, a vintage waterfall nightstand, was a diamond in the rough. Before I started to paint her, she needed a few minor repairs. Once the boring but important fixes were completed I painted her with a coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.


I got Daisy from an ad on Facebook. I just knew she had potential.


She had some missing and chipped veneers but there are ways to fix that with some wood glue and bondo all-purpose putty.


The distressing is always the fun part for me.


I wanted to do something different to the drawer so I decoupaged some left over fabric and attached a vintage glass knob.


& I didn't stop there. I wanted to add character to the inside of the drawer so I decoupaged book pages and scraps of fabric.


I used 3 paint colors (Coco, Cream, & Old White) to do the dry brush. Then I rubbed the dark wax on the exposed wood and finished with clear wax all around.


What a fantastic piece to work with. I am completely satisfied with the results.
