Distress Painted Edges
Use a sanding block wrapped in 80-grit sandpaper to remove paint and primer from areas of the nightstand that would have seen the most wear over time, such as around the hardware and along the edges and corners of the piece.
Reattach Doors, Drawer Knobs and Pulls
Allow nightstand to dry for a minimum of 48 hours, then reattach and reinsert doors and/or drawers. Tip: If the hardware has seen better days, replace it. To ensure a proper fit, bring the old hardware along when shopping for new hardware and use it as a guide.
