I love the rich dark mahogany color & wanted to try to duplicate this on our bedroom dressers.
Here is a before shot:
Here are the progress pics which this took a little longer than expected. I originally picked up the wrong stain but my favorite Lowe's paint guy helped me get the right stuff. I used Minwax Polyshades in Bombay Mahogany in the satin finish:
Below it is lightly sanded to remove the previous varnish:
I am planning to change out the knobs so we had to fill the holes & sand.
The drawers are dovetailed & nice quality:
3 coats of stain on & lightly sanded between each:
And here is it all finished!! Let's look at the 'before' one more time:
That mirror used to be orange too but a little spray paint changed that!
I bought the ring pulls online from here & the longer drawer pulls were at Lowe's.
I thought about taking down all my jewelry hanging from the hooks under the mirror, but thought why? I don't have anywhere to hang the jewelry without it all getting tangled so function out rules looks here.
I have a piece of glass ordered for the top & will be using this tray also:
And I will continue this project on the coordinating chest, but I was too excited to post this. Time consuming, but not a hard project at all. Do you have some oak that needs an update?
