TAKE TWO - english nightstands





Here is a list of the steps
taken to turned a desk
into a pair of nightstands.







BEFORE                   AFTER



Removed the top
keep it for another project
-

Replace all the missing drawer glides
plastic glides can be bought for a couple a bucks
at your home improvement store


Find and attach pieces for new tops
so I can add even more wood parts to the ever growing pile


Remove old hardware


Alter the bottom to work with new legs
easier said than done


Install new hardware
thankfully I didn't have to fill and sand holes this time


Repeat all steps a second time
this was my chance to get it done right


Paint and wax
I think I am getting the hang of this part


Line drawers
so we don't have to look at colorful ink stains
and doodles left by the last owner


Photograph your finished pieces
contact patient customer to find out they are perfect
