this is the small start of our bedroom makeover. We are going to add another nightstand bedframe and dresser/entertainment center in the future made this one from some 2×4s and wood I had in the shop. I bought some of the higher quality pine at HD and i used a pre-stain wood conditioner on everything but the drawer fronts turned out real blotchy.

I took all the drawer fronts off sanded them down and stained them again without the condioner.

I dont know if I just got in too big a rush and put on stain too soon but it looked gruesome lol

I think they turned out a bit better. Still a bit spotty but better maybe you guys can give me some tips to avoid this in future. any tips or advice will be well received
Still have to put buttons on top to finish but moose couldnt wait to get it in. :)

I love this stuff!!!!

I like the look of it, I like that color and it shows the grain well.
