Wanted to build nightstands for our bedroom after tackling the farmhouse table plans. Followed the plans for the farmhouse bedside table. The build went really well. These were the first drawers I have made and they work great. I first tried to stain them using the vinegar and steel wool method which worked great on my trial piece. Then when applied to the nightstands...nothing. We ended up using Minwax grey. I was a scary color to start with but couldn't be happier with the results. People are loving the different color and still being able to see the grain.
