French Nightstand


This raspberry color is beautiful. I mixed some colors to get this. I get tired of painting the same colors. We all know the neutrals sell great but colors are really selling too now.

I sell a lot of color. I am glad since it really goes with my name...Dreamingincolor!

This french nightstand was screaming PINK!



I love the height of the nightstand also. A lot of times when I buy old nightstands they tend to be really short. This one is perfect!

I added a little pop of color inside the drawer too! It looks better than the old wood underneath.


One thing I have learned painting so much furniture is to come out of your comfort zone. Try new colors and techniques. Try mixing colors to form new ones too. It just might surprise you.


I waxed it with clear and dark wax to tone down the color some.
I love the curves and details on this piece. 

What do you think of the color?
Would you try it?

I love raspberry! I once painted 3 walls in a kitchen a dark raspberry. It was gorgeous! Nice job Deneen.

Gorgeous Deneen! I am learning to leave my comfort zone when it comes to color. Love the pop of it inside the drawer too!

I absolutely love that colour! I think it really suits the style of the piece. I could see that in my master bedroom.
