First Furniture for Sale

I started refurbishing some curb finds and am finding that people throw out furniture that still has great potential. I have been working on a couple tables and several chairs, but here are my first finished pieces. They are solid end tables or nightstands! Got them in very poor condition: covered in faded superhero stickers and paint spills. I sanded off the old finish and all of the stickers, then painted the tops and the insides of the drawers. To make the tops look appealingly weathered, I sanded down the new paint and then sealed it with gloss varnish. I then stained the wood to preserve it and bring out its natural glow. This is the product!

I have sold one already and one is still for sale for $60! Contact me if interested!
