I haven't had as much fun on a certain piece in a while as I did with this one.  It all started with a severly neglected vintage nightstand that had some really bad veneer problems.  After a lot of modifications, rebuilding and custom work on the light and storage bin area, the piece got a lot of custom paint and distressing love to complete it.

And that it important building this thing not only with skills but also with love and i think that thing adds a great impact in this creation. I would really like to see another thing like this one but I suggest to make it related and seems look like childrens bedroom furniture that we can use at home. Thanks for Consideration. Keep up the good work. :) Posted: 3:00 am on August 27th

How DO you do it? No, really ...how do you do that? I am always so amazed at the things you come up with and the way that you finish things with such an eye for detail. Great work, and if you ever want to tell me how you do that, I'm all ears!
PS..I like the way you do the photos too. How do you do THAT? Posted: 6:36 pm on October 30th
