About This Project

I built this nightstand several months ago, so I honestly don't remember my time or money investment all that well. It was a fun, easy project though. As usual the biggest time investment was in the finish work.

Required Skill Level: 
Finish Used: 
Primed. Painted in Behr Cotton Fluff - Satin finish. Sanded and stained with Minwax Dark Walnut stain. The stain was pretty dark but I wanted to use up what I had. I just kept plenty of paper towels and paint thinner nearby to thin it down to the shade I wanted.


I read your description of the finish for your table but I was wondering if it was really paint, then stain in that order. I know nothing about finishes so any tips would be greatly appreciated.
