Stand Primed

Got the night stand all primed and ready for color.
Primed Drawers

You’d be surprised how easy it is to prime drawers.  Pictured: the old dresser’s drawers and night stand’s drawer.


Sanding Time


Here is a shot of the night stand all sanded and ready to be primed.

Stand Sanded
100 Drawer

Here is a sanded drawer from the 100 year-old dresser.  The wood grain really popped when sanded.

Summer Project


Here is the night stand that I’m currently working on.  It was a nice find at a local rummage sale…$4.50.  The night stand came with little casters on, but I eventually took those off.  You’ll notice that it has dove-tailed drawers…a good indicator of solid construction.  Don’t you just love the sponge-painted interior?!  Don’t worry, that’ll be going away.


Ahhh, love the sponge-painted interior area.
