Coral and Blue Night Stand

Wow...June is such a C-R-A-Z-Y month.....Between birthdays (my baby boy turned 18), school dances, finals, sports banquets, races and anniversary's, I haven't had a chance to catch my breath much less Blog!!!
I did however find a little time for this furniture "re-do" and I must say I am kind-of pleased with it!!

I got it a the GW for $4.99 ( price to good to pass up), along with the little pink shelf.
Autumn helped me choose the coral and blue paint I then added Plaster of Paris, to turn it into "Chalk Paint"
The drawer pulls are form Cost Plus and I finish it with two coats of  Water-Based Polycrylic by Miniwax....
Total cost $18.00.   :)

I've got lots of other projects started so "stay tuned"...July should be a fun month!!

And as usual thanks for stopping by!!

PS:  I will be linking up to many of the parties on my side check them out!!
