This project goes back about a year when I was working on finishing the master bedroom before August. I kept looking for a way to add texture to the bookshelf or nightstands and ended up priming and painting them all white:
I really fell in love with this Moroccan stencil and thought it would be fun. Ignoring the fact that I suck at any painting that isn’t “slap it on” simple. Here’s the poorly done stencil that I covered up with more paint:
So in lieu of knowing what to do, I moved the nightstand out to the garage and let it sit there for a few weeks.
Then… magic. In the form of remnant fabric from Jo-Anns! I picked up this piece that was .583 yds, originally $12.99/yd on clearance for $3.80. Since the fabric was thick enough, and sorta fuzzy, I decided to use hot glue instead of modge podge.
Then, when I finished the top I realized how much I hated the gray drawer. So I pulled it out, unscrewed the drawer pulls and found my black glossy spray paint. 17 thousand coats later:
I would still like to find some drawer pulls in white but those are on the list for later. Here’s how it looks in the room:
For those of you counting at home, yes this makes 4 table tops currently covered in zebra print fabric… I might need an intervention. But isn’t it cute? Since all the frames in my room and the dresser are dark I thought it was a nice way to bring the two together. Who knows? Maybe I’ll use the other remnant on my bookshelf.
Didn’t I mention that?
Yes, I found 2 remnants. And bought them both.
