Wife wanted a new dresser/TV stand for the bedroom and wanted it in Alder. The original plan was to distress it, but she changed her mind and we ended with this. Also made the jump to all water based finishes. This was a “custom” blend of WB dye stain with WB poly topcoat.

General Finishes. The blend was (4) Vintage Cherry, (2) Light Brown, (1) Yellow. My favorite part, the dovetails. This was my first adventure with colored fronts and untouched sides. Now that I have done it, it’s easy.

Great combination of a dresser and an entertainment center! I am working on one now that looks like a sideboard. They are a lot of work, and you did this one proud.
