My dad built this nightstand for me when I was about 8-years-old. Recently, I decided to awesomize this piece of furniture and give it some new life.
- I sand it. I start at 80 grit.
- I bevel out corners.
- I sand until I'm wet-sanding at 600 grit. Super smooth.
- I stain it with teak oil. Super shiny and luster finish.
- I replace the wooden knob with this cool metal one from home depot. More stylish.
- Original -
- Finished! -
** These pictures really don't do the new finish justice. You have to feel the wood to appreciate the level of finish. If you are ever at my house - you gotta check it out! **
