It’s Thrift Store Decor Day and I’m sharing how to makeover a nightstand using chalk paint and gel stain. I can’t really go thrift shopping these days but I had a nightstand that I found at a second-hand store about 10 years ago that needed a makeover. I personally loved the color and it was in the boy’s room when they were little but now that my youngest is 14 he asked that the baby green be GONE. So I used what I had and home and got to work.
Here is the before, who knows where the missing knob went.

Gel Stain I used Verathane Gel Stain in Black
Black pray paint for knobs
Paint your piece with 2 coats of the chalk paint using a foam roller or angle brush, allowing it to dry in between coats.
You can either use a foam brush to apply the glaze or a rag. Go over a small area and immediately wipe the glaze off with a baby wipe or damp rag.
Wipe as much or as little as you want, depending on the look you are trying to achieve.
If you don’t like what you did, wipe it off and start over.
We were missing one but my husband found a random knob in his junk drawer. We just spray painted it black like the others and it fits right in.
