Night Stands with Panels

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you might remember a backsplash we did.  If not, see it here. The backsplash came from 1005 Design, a new idea in kitchen backsplashes. After doing the backsplash I knew there could be other uses for these decorative panels.  Jana at 1005 Design was nice enough to send me a couple to work with.
And what did I do with them ..?
Well here is the project.  A couple of nightstands /end tables .. plain, nothing spectacular.

I started by removing the hardware. I primed both pieces entirely with KILZ spray primer.  I used a really cool bronze color from RUST-OLEUM. I let the paint dry completely and then coated all painted surfaces with a high gloss polyurethane.  I wanted a really glossy bronze.

Here is the 1005 Design panel that I chose.  The name of this design is Art Nouveau. For simple cuts all you need is a good sharp blade, a file and a straight edge.

The panels were applied with a construction adhesive to the tops of the tables and the drawer fronts.  Hardware was updated for the new look.

These would make awesome night stands but as you can see I simply used them as end tables.

The panels are so easy to cut that you probably wont need any trim around the edges.

Make sure to get the adhesive close to the edges and then flatten the adhesive so it wont squish out the sides.

Check out 1005 Design for a look at this and more designs. If you don’t have a backsplash to do I’m sure you’ll find all kinds of other uses for these panels.
Quite honestly if I had more I would have paneled the whole thing.

  8. Lisa - the side table looks great. I love the paint you selected it complements the backsplash color perfectly. I may have to try using that same color.

  10. How clever are you? The nighstands went from okay to "ta-dah." I have two nightstands and you have given me a great idea. I love your blog.....but I think you knew that already.

  12. Just gorgeous! I have had a cast-off hutch bottom that my neighbor gave me last summer sitting in my garage. I wanted to refinish it in a silver color. I just love what you did here.

    I never thought about spray paint. Do you remember how many cans you used to complete both nightstands? Also, was the high gloss polyurethane also spray painted?

    Thanks much for sharing this!
    Kindly, Lorraine

  14. Very pretty! Nice to see something redone that's not shabby, chipped, weathered, once in awhile :-) I'm getting to where I'd like to see some re-dos on furniture that actually look like they're "done". This is it! Love it!

  18. I was one of the lucky ones who received the materials to do a backsplash from the same company. It turned out beautiful.....I did it in copper. I never would have thought to use it on an end table. Just gorgeous!
