Custom Gray Nightstands

Here is a quick before & after of a pair of nightstands I painted for a new client. These are going in her daughters bedroom.



The color in the pictures isn't very true to the color they are in person. They are a pretty shade of gunmetal gray. Who knew gunmetal gray could be pretty....trust me it is, plus I think the name gunmetal gray is cool!
My client had this color custom matched so we don't have an actual name for it.

this picture is a better example of the color.

Man, it's hard photographing and staging little tables!
I used my homemade chalk paint (1 cup paint and 1/4 cup baking soda) so the paint would be a little  more durable since these are going to a little girl.
I lightly distressed the edges and sealed with wax.
 These are going to look so cute in a little girls room!
