120 Year Old Washstand Restoration

Modern Makeovers
Thank you to Tailored Canvases for sponsoring this video!

I knew the paint and shellac layers would be quite the challenge to remove going into it, but these makeovers are usually the most rewarding in the end. When I noticed that the entire piece was 100% solid wood, I immediately decided that I want to stain it; this meant that I'd have to do a very thorough job of removing the layers of gunk. Another challenge of scraping this much is trying to avoid digging into the wood with the scraper by accident. I wanted to raise the height of the piece, so I gave it some tall legs with extra shelf space at the bottom, using what was originally the top of the piece. The vacant space behind the missing door was turned into a wine storage space with a removable rack.
