I decided that it was time for new furniture until I realized the outrageous prices on a comparable solid wood set. Besides that, I could never find a set that I liked as well as our dresser and nightstands.
Here's what they looked like before the makeover -
I knew that I wanted something dark and found a vanity makeover on Pinterest using General Finishes Java Stain. Leigh and I tried it out on a bookshelf for her first - check out that post HERE. The bookshelf turned out fantastic and I knew that the stain would be perfect for our furniture.
Here's the new look -
Here's a Before and After with the nightstands -
I love the look of the new furniture and it is holding up well so far.
I have to admit that it took me about 6 weeks to finish it all up. Tim asked me if I could please finish it up since he was tired of having his underwear laying out on the dining room table!!! Poor guy!!!
But hey - I saved him THOUSANDS of dollars by refinishing our furniture - so I think having his undies on display for a few weeks was a small price to pay!!!
Hope every one had a wonderful weekend!
