I found this handsome piece at a yard sale for $10! It's pretty big (an old entertainment unit). I was originally thinking of painting it two shades of blue but I kind of like the idea of staining it. It has a number of good scratches in it.
That wood is too nice to paint. It might look good with a nice ebony stain.
How deep are the scratches? You can sand out a lot of damage. Wood filler is very forgiving and easy to work with. It takes stain very well as a rule, though, which is why I suggested a darker color.
I loved that suggestion Mara! I just got back from Home Depot (they must think I'm a crazy painting project lady... which I suppose... anyway) and picked up some black stain. I'm planning on tackling this project today or tomorrow so will post updated pics soon.
That is Beautiful can't see what you do to it
