Last week I shared building plans with you guys so you can make your own Mid Century Nightstand with Hidden Shoe Storage. Today, I'm back and showing you how I achieved a professional looking stained finish on that piece. 

I teamed up again with Mohawk Finishing and H. Behlen and made a video tutorial so you can see what each step looks like. You know I must love you guys, because I would much rather be in my garage covered in sawdust than making a video, but I want to give you my best.

  1. Did I miss the part where you use the Rockhard Table Top Varnish? What is that product for? Thanks. It looks beautiful!!

    1. You're right Karen, that was a mistake. I've removed the Rockhard from the list. Thanks for catching that!

  2. Wow, Elisha, great tips! I want to stain some raw wood with a turquoise wood stain so the tip about the pre-treat is key. Thanks also for the tip about the lacquer. :) Now to find my respirator mask. :)
