A Winning Nightstand


At the recent SNAP! bloggers conference in Salt Lake City, Minwax® asked me to stain and finish this nightstand in our booth so that we could give it away to one of the lucky attendees.

Working on a narrow table in a crowded booth was a bit of a challenge, but everyone seemed to enjoy watching the progression take place, starting with an application of Minwax® Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner, followed here with Espresso Wood Finish™ Stain.

Quick Tip:  Make any unfinished project look classier by replacing the standard wooden pulls with ones you pick out in the hardware section of your local home improvement store. All you need to make the change is a screwdriver.

After the Espresso stain had dried, I rubbed on three coats of Minwax® Wipe-On Poly, choosing the gloss sheen to give the nightstand even more depth.

And even squeezed onto the end of our booth, the completed nightstand looked great — and went home on the final day with one of our happy attendees.

Until next time,

Make today a Project Day!
