Looking to update a piece of old furniture? Follow along for our easy NIGHTSTAND MAKEOVER WITH AMY HOWARD ONE STEP PAINT!
We are so excited to show you our NIGHTSTAND MAKEOVER WITH AMY HOWARD ONE STEP PAINT! I got these nightstands for cheap a few years ago. I was just barely getting into DIY projects at this point…and I spray painted them black! They’ve always just looked “okay”. I was done with “okay” and wanted to LOVE them. I wanted the Pantone color of the year, and Amy Howard has a one step paint that is very close! It is called Easy Street.
This was a super simple project and I couldn’t be happier with the results.First off I sanded down the dressers a bit. This was kinda messy since I used spray paint on them. **Sigh…
With One Step Paint, sanding and prepping are steps you don’t necessarily have to take. I painted these poorly before and I wanted as fresh of canvas as possible. That is why I sanded them down.
Painting doesn’t get easier than this. Stir your One Step Paint, then apply with a high quality paint brush like this one from Amy Howard at Home.
Apply in a even motion, not going over the areas you’ve painted. Let them dry thoroughly. I did two coats just to be safe.
One my nightstands were completely dry, I waxed them with Clear Wax. Waxing is simple. Dip your brush in the wax, rub it on a plate to “offload” and then use x motions and apply it over your entire piece. Allow it to dry for at least 1 hour, then buff it off with a clean rag.
I added circular vinyl cutouts behind my knobs, and then added my new knobs from Hobby Lobby.

I am very happy with the results of my labors. For any questions, leave a comment below, or visit www.amyhowardathome.com
