We bought these huge chunky nightstands when my husband & I had just starting living together. Imported cheap “handmade” furniture had just become a thing and thank goodness this was the only thing we ever bought like this.
It smelled of vomit until I stripped the disgusting smelling stain with Simple Green and then the natural anti odor properties of liming wax did the rest. Since these night stands are made of asian mahogany, aka light & open pores, they are the perfect wood for using liming wax.
I could not be happier with the way these turned out, saving us from having to buy new nightstands for a few more year.
