PAINTING AN OLD WATER DAMAGED NIGHTSTAND TO A BLACK DISTRESSED FINISH

My client is redecorating her guest bedroom and asked me to paint this nightstand.  
She decorates well with black and wanted it to be black, too.


She said just a little bit distressed.  


It was brown stained before and had some water damage on the top.  
I had to lightly sand with my orbital sander and then a little light sanding  by hand to get the top as smooth as I could.


I love the way it turned out. 
I think I'm going back to paint the guest bedroom walls, so I will get to see it in place.  That's always fun for me.  
She's picking it up in a little while and I'm eager for her to see the transformation from the older, water damaged piece of furniture. 
 It looks brand new, again!!

    1. Yes, my client loves black accents. And, I think most of the furniture in this guest bedroom is going to be black. She was wanting me to paint the nightstand black to match. Thank you!
