These nightstands came to the shop in dire need of repairs. They had chunks missing needing to be rebuilt, but were vintage, solid wood, dovetail, curvy and well built. Therefor they had potential and as it tuned out they were perfect for a young boys bedroom.As you can see from the photo the lower front section along with other areas not shown in this photo were in sad shape. In addition to being sanded, cleaned and prepped these problem areas were all addressed and repairs were made. This is probably the most time consuming part of the work, but very necessary.
Once the repairs were complete and sanded smooth I was able to move on. I custom mixed a dark espresso brown for my customer who prefers a simple and classic look. The drawers were also painted both inside and out. I love the bow front of the drawers and hidden groove on the underside of the drawers that allow for no hardware at all.
They were finally sealed with a tinted sealer to add a touch of extra richness to the espresso.
