NightStand Makeover

I shared this project last month at Not Just A Housewife last month. 
In case you missed there.. here it is.

The inspiration for my nightstand was this cute little pot that my mom bought at Gordman's.  I loved the look of the shiny underneath the tan.  I started by covering my entire nightstand in regular tin foil.  I used this instead of just painting silver to give it the texture.  I wrinkled the foil up and then glued pieces in place with modge podge.  I smoothed them out as I went.  I did some shiny side down, and some shiny side up.  I then went over the whole thing with 2 layers of modge podge.  Below is a picture of the top covered before I glazed it.

I then glazed over the foil with Ralph Lauren Glaze tinted with black paint.  I rubbed it on with a rag.  I let it sit for a few minutes and then wiped it off until I achieved the darkness that I wanted.

I then dry brushed on the tan, and let the paint dry.  I then glazed back over the it again lightly to add more depth.  I repainted the old hardware with some silver acylic that I already had.

It turned out AWESOME.  I am very pleased with the end result.  It looks just like the pot.
