Nautical Night Table (anchor motif)

Lately, I have been rescuing furniture from frustrated furniture painters rather than the curb. It seems they beat me to the "curb alerts" only to give up when they don't know what to do with their findings.  This was one such giveaway.  The original night table didn't look that bad but it came to me already primed and the drawer pulls were already spray painted silver.

With summer fast approaching (this was May) I decided to go for the nautical look and just finish the paint job.  Not knowing the kind of wood underneath the primer, I wasn't willing to strip it all down.  So I continued with an off white paint and a medium gray for the anchor.  Nautical rope from ACMoore was used for the drawer pulls to comeplete the night table.
The anchor was hand-painted on both sides

Although I thought it would be perfect for a beach house, it was purchased by a mother who had just redone her toddler's bedroom into a shark/nautical theme.  Sweet dreams young boy and enjoy the new night table!
