Bedroom IKEAHackersNightstand

Simple Nightstand Remix


Materials: Hemnes nightstand

I had two black/brown Hemnes nightstands that were begging for a facelift. I recently replaced my dark Hemnes dressers with a mid-century pair, but I really liked the shape and function of the nightstands, so I decided to aim for a trendy white & wood combo.

I started by sanding off the black finish on the drawers with my palm sander. Then I added a rich walnut stain and poly coat.

I primed and painted the rest of the nightstand white. It took several coats to get complete coverage over the black.

I added some brass bar pulls from Anthropology, and Voila! New nightstands.
