A Nightstand to Forget

My teachers come back to work in one week, so I've been running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to get ready to greet them.  So it doesn't surprise me when I forget something.  My brain's just trying to hold on to too much!

Last night I showed you how to strip and refinish a table top.  I used a pair of nightstands that I recently found at a flea market.  I promised tonight to show you the finished product.  Now I would have bet money that I took pictures of the process.  Evidently they fell out of my brain along with half the other stuff I'm trying to remember!

Fortunately I snapped a couple of pictures when I dropped them off at the shop this weekend.  Guess you can get the basic idea.

I painted them with two coats of ASCP Old White, distressed, clear wax and dark glaze.

This is the front of the nightstand.  The back has a built in magazine rack.  Pretty cool!

Guess you'll have to take my word for it!

Pin It
