DIY Striped NightstandI’ve been meaning to paint the nightstand in my youngest’s room since we renovated it earlier this year. I love the original color but there were tons of huge chunks taken out of it from the previous owner (that my husband had already fixed with wood filler) so re-staining it wasn’t an option. I told him he could choose what color it would be and he wanted grey with blue stripes. I was a bit hesitant but agreed.

I got his colors of paint and some ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape Delicate Surfaces with Advanced Edge-Lock™ Paint Line Protector 2080EL. I love that it’s specifically for delicate surfaces including fresh paint! (24 hours old).

DIY Striped NightstandI painted the entire nightstand with 2 coats of grey paint and let cure completely overnight.
