DIY CORAL NIGHTSTAND

CORAL NIGHTSTAND NESTLING INTRICATE TEXTURES

I have this piece a few weeks ago during a sale around the corner from our apartment. I went in the afternoon and could not believe it was still there. I know exactly what I want to do with it. So, let’s talk about how I move this Night Stand Table $8!

I’ve seen a few posts on Pinterest with the table like this where you have the backdrop inside. That was my original plan. However, when I started looking for wallpapers I
realized how expensive it was and how difficult it is to go through the day in a modern pattern. I did some research and found a much cheaper alternative and perhaps
more easily. Fabrics and mod podge. This combo works wonders and I will definitely use it in the future. I took some time to choose my colors. I’ve got gray in mind and
initially thought a mint color for paint. After some googling, some pretty coral pieces my eye and I was hooked.

Being new to all this wood working tools, I asked my brother needed this kind of prepping piece before I start drawing. He said only a light sanding and I’ll be good to go. I figured this is the time to buy power tools my first🙂. I went to Homeshopping and get yourself a hand sander. I was very excited about this sucker and can not wait to use it.

After sanding all major surface and wipe clean, I’m ready to draw. What do I do about the 3 layer for the pieces are covered. The color called Pink Salmon Glidden.

I bought some new hardware at Hobby Lobby which turned out to be quite a process to screw in. With help from the center and a friend of ours, they have helped me settle drawer and we were good to go.

The next step, the fabric! I think this process has been more difficult than it really is. The hardest part is actually cutting the fabric to the head was straight. I use the divots
on our porch as a guide 🙂
Once they were cut, I mod podged inside and use an old ID card to smooth it out. I cut a big piece for the back and bottom, and two separate parts for both sides. I put one more layer of mod podge on all types of fabric to create a hard finish and help keep it in place.
This acts as an excellent sealant and will help protect it from getting dirty. It was a little scary at first, but do not worry, it will dry clear!

My original plan was to start over with nothing on it, but I was not sold on the way it has been searched. I happened to have some left over from when I gray paint our bathroom and it was a perfect match.
