Rainy Day Project
I got a GREAT dumpster dive. A neighbor was throwing away these shutters so I cleaned them up and put them behind our bed. My night stands were deep chocolate brown and they clashed with the lighter decor. So I spray painted them white, and then poured burnt umber and silver acrylic onto a paper plate, took a chip brush and a soppy wet kitchen sponge dipped it into the paint and began "washing" the color onto the surface of the stands. I like them much better.
