It's been a while since I've been able to complete a project with moving and then moving again. For the Hubs' B-Day I decided to start and complete an entire project in a week. The difficult thing was not being able to do it at home because he would see it. So off to my Grandma's patio I went. with the boys in toe, of course
A while back I saw a B.E.A.UTIFUL nightstand at
It's a phenomenal transformation that I had to be a part of. I did most everything the same, including ordering the pulls from Canada because they were way more expensive via U.S. shop, which was TOTALLY worth it. I love how it turned out. I did, however, use a Dark Walnut stain instead of a medium grade stain like she did. Truth be told-I preferred the color that she used, but wasn't able to find it. I tried one that I thought would be similar and it turned out almost clear. Then I decided to try the Dark Walnut I already had. It looked great on the first side. Only problem was that the pine of the nightstand soaked the stain so quickly that it was darker on the remaining sides and I just had to go with it. Overall, I'm pleased with the result and the Hubs loves having a nightstand again since I stole his
After I get more done in my Master, I'll work on getting better staged pictures. 

I hope you enjoyed stopping by for a look
