I started with the desk and finished with the nightstand. I cut the top to size planed it back to natural wood, primed and painted the base and fixed the runners and drawer guides. Finished top with polyurethane.

Thanks guys, it was alot of work but it basically cost me only time and finish materials. Salvaged the pulls from another project.

Pat, thats a beautiful piece! You know how I feel about reclaimed lumber! You took a discarded piece of furniture and made something to last another 100 years!!! Great job friend!
