Walnut and White Credenza and an Unusual Use for a Brown Paper Bag.

This was a custom job. I used Minwax Antique Walnut stain and Benjamin Moore Linen White for the piece. A trick: use a brown paper bag to smooth down your newly stained surfaces. It has just enough grit to settle any areas that are slightly rough. I used the bag before applying the Varathane semi-gloss poly sealer.
  • The hardware is original, patina and all!
  • I sanded the top with an orbital sander using 80 grit then 120 to smooth it out.
  • Before applying the varathane poly, I "sanded" the stained top with a brown paper bag. Seems weird but the bag smoothed out any slightly rough spots.
