If you are in the Houston area, you have probably heard of The Dump.
It is more of a discontinued, surplus store. The hubby and I went and bought all of our furniture there before we moved into our new home as newlyweds.
We saved a bundle and got some great deals are some good quality furniture. Though, I do love the things that we accumulated from there, they bore me.
Here is our natural oak night stand, that has a twin and a tall boy 5 drawer dresser that comes with it.
So I suggested that I maybe, jazz up the ole bedroom.
So I went to Lowes, and picked out my favorite red sample and came home with red velvet.
Though after three coats it's still looked like a dark pink to me.
So I slapped a little walnut stain on it, let it bake for 10 minutes or so.
Wiped it away and this is what I got.
I also just could not find hardware that I liked, so I spray painted the original hardware a brassy brown color.
I am not sure if I LUV it, but I do like it.
