Nightstand Before and After

Remember a few months ago I posted about a nightstand my father-in-law bought for me at an auction?  Well, the warm weather finally lined up with my free time long enough for me to get outside and sand it.  Sanding took a few days and afterwards I put on 2 coats of ebony stain and 3 coats of semi-gloss polyurethane.   It looks painted, but it’s not.  I promise.  Here are some pictures!
