Damsel in Distress

Check it out!
In preparation for moving into the house, I’ve been on the lookout for nightstands, bookshelfs, chairs, etc. I was planning on leaving behind the nightstand that I use at my parent’s house, but decided instead I would paint and distress it to fit my new room!
I read up on how to distress furniture beforehand and then went to town!
Turns out that banging on furniture with hammers and socks full of nails & screws is therapeutic in its own way!
Here it is before…

Keep a lookout for pictures of it in its new home!
