Painted White Nightstand

A big thanks to Plaid for sponsoring this post and providing me with the new Martha Stewart Vintage Decor Paint. I had the perfect project- a white nightstand for Rachel’s room! I found a side table at a yard sale years ago for $8. It was really beat up, but it was solid wood and […]
