Arles Nightstand

One Man's Trash.....

A few months ago I found this little nightstand at the local thrift store. I was with a friend who spotted it first but kept walking because she felt it was priced to high ($10). She felt it was too beat up and even tried to barter without luck. I figured "what the heck", at the very least I can practice my ASCP skills without regrets and home we went (me, my friend and the nightstand).

I had recently purchase ASCP in Arles to refinish a little rocker for Lucy (HERE) and had a lot left over so the color choice was made. Sorry, I only took one (pretty bad) photograph before sanding and staining.

I did a very light sanding to bring the contrast between the rounded shape of the spindle legs and the more angular top and base.

I just love the color contrast too. The dark wax (AS Dark Wax) and the wood that peeked though from sanding make the color more vibrant. I also like the new handle. Gives it a more modern vibe.


Thanks for visiting
Oh yea......I made a deal with Chloe. I promised her that if she stayed out of the pictures I would post a picture of just her. Isn't she just the most beautiful little girl.
