The nightstands are not perfect, but they are soooooo much better than they used to be. You can still see the bubbling veneer, but it looks better painted:
I was pretty excited with how they turned out until I realized that chalk paint ain’t a miracle worker. I should have taken the extra time to prime. The paint scratches off with my fingernail! Dumb, dumb mistake.
I am guessing these nightstands will look good for approximately two days. Or less.
Doggone it! Craft fail! What do I do now? Is there a way to salvage them? Uggh!
