Rustic Gray Gel Stain Nightstand

By Anne Amini, Owner, Operator at Amini Design Ashburn in Ashburn, VA.

This vintage nightstand sat unloved with its dated pine for far too long in the back of a well-known local thrift store. As soon as I saw it I couldn't believe others had simply passed it by.  It's shape was perfect, plenty of storage and the original knobs were still attached.  It was a no-brainer; I took it home and immediately began to work on giving it a new life.  Refreshed with today's style in mind, we removed all of the orange stain, and chose GF's Gray Gel stain to complete this rustic look which is very popular in today's design trends.  We kept the perfect original knobs, and sealed the entire piece in our favorite top coat - GF High Performance in Satin.
