Bedside drawers upcycled from old dressing table

Since Covid I have learned to makeover old pieces of furniture with my own twist based on my love of craft and colour and textures.  Just a hobby initially but turning until a passion.  This one was two halves of an old dressing table that I picked up for virtually nothing and here's the finished product.

Hi @Wendyjoyhall

 

These are just the sweetest pair of side tables. How did you go with sanding the curved drawers? Did you have to hand sand them?

Hi Katie

Used my mouse sander mostly then finished off by hand.

Hi @Wendyjoyhall

 

Those handles really make a difference to the overall look of the cabinet. What clear finish did you use to seal the drawer fronts of the cabinet? It reminds me of modern mid-century furniture with a bit of a retro vibe.
