1950’s Bedside Repairs – Take 2

Continuing on from my last post, the repairs to the 1950’s bedsides have been completed.

Almost done!

I was reasonably happy with how the veneer patching turned out. Once the glue dried, I dotted the fresh veneer with a dark stain (walnut) to help give it a little colour, and after a light sand, I again spotted the repairs with a varnish/thinner mixture to build it up a little. It was after this I then realised I wasn’t happy with the overall finish on the door and drawer fronts. Cue some 240 grit wet and dry. This smoothed out the original finish, and gave a good base to then apply 2 final coats of the varnish/thinner mixture.

With the repairs done, it was time to polish the new (old) door and drawer handles in preparation for fitting!
