Nightstand transformation

As long as I've lived in this house -- 23 years -- I have used the nightstand that I had as a teen and an end table on either side of my bed in my master bedroom. It honestly didn't matter to me since not very many people see my upstairs. However, the end table never really worked as it only had one small drawer and so everything else spilled to the top of it and I often had no room for my necessities -- water bottle, sleep machine and book.

So, when two nightstands suddenly appeared for a price beyond belief at a recent house sale, I told my husband to grab them! They are a little larger than I wanted and the style wasn't exactly what I was looking for, but the price was right and I knew I could transform them. So, with the magic of Annie Sloan chalk paint, I transformed them into exactly what I wanted.
Here's the before. (Excuse the blurred focus -- it was dark and I took it with an old iPhone).




And, the after.



I decided to keep the wood top because I liked the look of the planked wood. I love using chalk paint because there is no need for any prep. I simply washed it inside and out with a mild soap and water, let it dry and then painted. I used Olde White. It's a color I've used on many pieces. Then I distressed it by sanding it in spots and added the Annie Sloan clear wax. Done!

No matter what age we belong to or what we do. if we are students trying to score well in exams or a professional trying hard that pending promotion or just an adult who is fighting hard to fight dementia, the idea of taking a pull to boost our brain functioning seems little appealing. Thus today it is no surprise that the use of the smart drug also known as nootropics is on a rise. In the past, the term nootropic was used to refer to chemicals that met certain criteria. However, today the term nootropic is used for any kind of natural or synthetic compound that affects the brain functioning of a person positively. The smart drug that is advancing over time is Nuvigil smart drug. People wishing to get this smart drug can buy Nuvigil online.
