You know how sometimes you go along with your wife's desire to buy something
for the house because it doesn't matter that much to you, and it's easier to
just get it over with? A year ago, against my better judgement, I said
"Yeah...ok" when my S.O. fell in love with a bedroom set from (forgive me)
Value City Furniture. Whoever designed this stuff (in China) should have a
car battery clipped to his nuts, while his face is introduced to a belt
sander. But, I digress. They were out of the nightstands when we purchased
the other things, and life being what it is, we sort of put off buying them.
Now, we find that the only matching one they offer is way too big. I've
found a few that match nicely (in style) at an unfinished furniture store.
But, the finish on the existing stuff is sort of wacky, and I think it's
gonna take a lot of experimenting to get it right.
The people at the store don't sound very confident with their stain
recommendations. I hate buying cans of stuff when there's an 80% chance
it'll go unused. Is there a stain manufacturer that'll sell small sample
tubes or some such thing?
What a pain....I should be fishing. Grrrrrrrr......
