Olivia from Rustic Owl Treasures is joining us for her very first Country Chic Paint blog post! Come find out how she beautified this nightstand with Elegance and Lazy Linen.

Hey y’all It’s Olivia from Rustic Owl Treasures! I am going to share a little night stand makeover with you today. I have been searching for a night stand for my room for about a month now, and I went to antique/flea mall and found one recently that had the look that I was going for. The piece was a really dark brown/stain it has little wavy places in it and to me just isn’t that pretty so I decided to paint it. Country Chic Paint recently sent me some paint to try out and become apart of their blog squad I’m super excited for the new adventure. So it was a no brainer for my first piece to be my night stand.

I chose the colors Elegance and Lazy Linen. Elegance is a light blue color that is perfect on its own or as a accent and Lazy Linen is a light grey with some cool tones. My bedroom is painted in Sherwin Williams- Watery and have bead board all the way around painted in white, most of my furniture is white/ grey furniture with accents of gold and silver. So I knew those colors would work perfect for my room.

Before I painted it used the beeswax distressing bar to help make distressing easier. then used the Elegance on the drawer and distressed it lightly and used white wax to tone it down a little and left the hardware the same. and for the rest of the night stand I used Lazy Linen It took two coats as this was a dark piece. Lightly distressed the piece on the edges and finished it all in natural wax. I love how it turned out!

The paint goes on super smooth and has great coverage, and is super easy to work with. It has little smell, and dries super quick, I was able to finish this night stand in a couple of days.
