I forgot to take a true before picture of the entire piece, but there were flowers painted on the drawers (which would NOT be okay with this guy)!
I've been experimenting with the many home recipes for ASCP, and what I had on hand this time was powdered unsanded grout. I mixed it with a wall paint we had leftover that was a green/tan color. I primed and painted and at first I loved the color and thought it went on pretty smoothly. Then I freaked out when it was dry because it was so rough. I sanded and sanded and sanded and sanded.
And this is the finished product! I think it turned out really well, but it's much more chippy and distressed than I would typically like. But he loves it and it works perfectly in the room!
His room is decorated with globes and old maps and I thought these adorable compass pulls would be the perfect finishing touch for the nightstand.
