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.

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!
