Nursery Furniture Progress

I've been making quite a mess in the basement lately.  I've been working on refinishing my midcentury craigslist finds for my future nephew's nursery. It's amazing what some high grit sandpaper can do. The dresser on the left is all sanded and ready for its new finishes.  The cabinet on the right is untouched (the dresser was just as bad as that to start with, too).

Steel wool also does wonders on the brass accents.

I'm hoping to have the prep work all done by the weekend.  If all goes as planned (I hope), I'll have an awesome transformation to show you next week!
