Bonne Nuit

I lucked up on a cute little piece of furniture. It wasn't that cute when I first got it but as usual it had a certain appeal.

I new I could try to transform it into something a lot better than the "before".

It was beige in color and boring. So I began to paint it in black. I called it a bench/magazine thingy. That was the technical term lol!
This time I found some really cute stencils at Hobby Lobby and with some old white I stenciled the front of the piece.

Then I stenciled the front of the magazine holders or sides of it.

This is it with the paint still wet.
I felt like it still needed something so I hand painted Bonne Nuit to the top.

I heavily distressed it and let the beige color come through.

Now it was an interesting piece to put in the store.  
It sold a couple of days later!

Christmas shopping today! NO I haven't finished yet!!!
