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.

  5. What i do not understood is if truth be told
    how you are no longer actually a lot more neatly-favored
    than you might be right now. You're so intelligent. You realize thus considerably relating to this matter, made me in my opinion consider it from numerous varied angles. Its like women and men are not fascinated unless it's one thing to
    accomplish with Girl gaga! Your individual stuffs outstanding.
