An attempt towards progress

Refinished maple nightstands

After a few responses to the last post I decided I needed to make an effort at digging myself out of this rut.  I am still in time out, but I need to be productive.

For those of you who don’t know (or haven’t been paying attention), the one place I can work uninterrupted is in my garage.  It’s hot as fuck in there right now, but no one messes with the projects in there.

Since the house has been on the market I have refinished a vintage metal bed frame and stained a pair of nightstands. Today I came home and started destroying refinishing my dresser.  I’ve had it since elementary school.  It moved to Texas with me in ’94 and I decided to paint it green (I was in a rut then too).  The plan is to remove the green paint and restore it to it’s former walnut stain finish.

Stay tuned.
