Winter Whites and Farmhouse Style: Pair of Nightstands

There's something about winter weather that makes me want to quite literally cover my entire house in white, evergreen and burgundy. I don't have the latter two colors on hand right now, so white it was for this pair of nightstands! I feel like I haven't painted with white in ages and it can be really refreshing when I come back to it. This pair instantly felt very farmhouse / rustic to me, so I kept things fairly simple, going with a heavy distressing hand and a matte white finish using Annie Sloan's Old White and white wax. I kept the styling super simple, literally grabbing a handful of 'holiday' objects from my living room and quickly placed them on the tops.  Sometimes I can't be bothered to run around the house unplugging lamps and creating a true 'bedside' vignette for nightstands, so I just style with what's on hand.  This pair is up for sale in my shop right now if you're looking for a Christmas gift for someone who loves a little farmhouse style [think Chip and Joanna Gaines!].
