HOW TO GAIN 3 INCHES - ornate night stands

Three inches to a night stands that is.

We all love the miss matched styling of shabby chic decor but most of us also
like to have a matched set of tables for our bedside.

Most vintage night stands are just too darn short for our current fat and luxurious mattress'.
So that's where I step in and raise them up.
This pair of solid wood carved night stands started at 24 inches tall before
I installed a vintage set of casters, lifting them 1.5"
and a solid frame added under the top to raise them another 1.5".

Here they are on there way to be sprayed in ASCP Old White, before a coat of ASCP clear wax
then Minwax dark to accent all the detailing of these pieces.

Originally there were no handles on the doors, I have no idea how someone would ever
get the cupboard doors open with out taking the drawer out first and reaching inside.

Maybe thats why they were stored away in a shed and not used.
