TWO ENGLISH NIGHTSTANDS - made from a desk








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








BEFORE                   AFTER



Removed the top - keep it for another project
-

Make all necessary repairs - plastic drawer glides 
can be bought at the home improvement store


Attach new wood pieces for tops - salvage wood
 from other unwanted furniture


Remove old hardware for painting - new pieces can be found on-line


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

***********************************************************


Install new hardware -  fill and sand holes if nessecary


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 - to cover up any stains left inside the drawers from previous use


Photograph your finished pieces
