Cait from Little City Farmhouse used Vanilla Frosting and Tough Coat to give these outdated, knotty pine nightstands new life!

What do you do when you have great quality furniture that functions well in your home but you’re just over the finish of it? Paint it! A simple paint job can completely change the look and feel of your furniture!

I refinished these nightstands for a client. They are knotty pine and had a lacquered finish in a honey colour. Dated for sure, but great quality pieces. I started by giving them a light sanding to dull the shine of the finish. I then painted them in two coats of Vanilla Frosting – my all time favourite white!

When they were dry I sanded them smooth and lightly distressed the edges and corners. Pieces like nightstands can get a lot of use and wear & tear, so I used Tough Coat to seal them.

Cait {Little City Farmhouse}

Hello! I’m Cait! I am a wife and a mom of two little ones, and a proud auntie of a growing little flock! I first started by refinishing several pieces in my own home, and fell in love with it. Slowly it turned into a business and something I could do from home. I love the thrill of finding old furniture, and I adore the process of refinishing it into something new and fresh. Refinishing furniture is the heart of my business. I believe your home should reflect who you are, and I love helping people get the look they want in their homes by refinishing their furniture for them.
