HOW TO GAIN 3 INCHES - ornate night stands

We all love the miss matched styling of shabby chic decor but most 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
 that's why they were stored away in a shed and not used.
