How to Revive a Beat-Up Nightstand
A single knob on each drawer is more modern than two. HGTV Magazine shows you how.
- 1"-diameter cabinet knobs
- 9 shades of paint
Remove the drawers, and unscrew and discard the old knobs. Patch the holes with wood filler. Sand and prime the frame and the drawer fronts.
Paint the frame cobalt blue and the drawer fronts white. Let dry.
Stand the drawers next to each other, faceup, so they’re touching. Use delicate-surface painter’s tape to tape off every other stripe in varying widths, running each strip of tape across both drawers. Slice the tape between drawers before painting.
Paint each stripe, and peel off the tape while the paint is still slightly wet. Let dry overnight.
Tape off the remaining stripes and paint them following step 4. Let dry.
Drill holes for the new knobs and attach. Replace the drawers.
