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.
