Addendum to previous Post

This is where the previous post ended.  I had stripped the top of this nightstand and experimented with a new technique on the painting of the base and drawers.
 
I was not thrilled with the results.

I was especially disappointed in how orange the original finish looked next to the black top coat.
 
I sanded most of the black off the drawers.
 
Next I painted the top black. 
 
I repeated the wax rub-off technique used on the base but only on the edging around the top.
 
 I think this pulled it out of the "oops" pile.  So don't give up on a piece that isn't working.  You just aren't finished with it yet.
