Mini makeover to prepare for mammoth makeover

Well, here we go...starting to prep for refinishing a mammoth breakfront stored in garage since winter.  Was quite the moving project for husband John, having to borrow a neighbors truck and all (wonderful, generous neighbors!).

At any rate, starting small to decide on colors and finish.  Happy with the results on this little 50's nightstand/end table.

Not so happy with the after photo and the fact that the top looks a different color.. 2nd try. Must be the lighting in my workshop/gathering room/ eating area.
The top is actually the same as the front.

Just have to finish with paste wax to protect the piece and give it a soft sheen.
All in all happy with the results. Will be adding a similar style piece as my second effort - a really cute small dresser that would work wonderfully as a hall table or a chest in a living room or dining room.  Love when pieces are versatile and can be used in a number of ways in a number of places.
