Thank you all again, and let me answer some of the questions I've recieved here...DanielSmith

-The most labor intensive thing on this was everything. In these kind of projects you never get a break. The sanding was hard and long, especially on the rounded bits, the priming and painting were not hard, but did take a long time, especially all the taping and all the layers of paint. Then the legs, and the varnish which were pretty time consuming as well.
I don't mean to depress you, it's totally doable, but like anything else life, is not easy.
As for a recommendation, I would recommend anyone wanting to redo furniture to start with a piece that is almost worthless. Don't start off on an antique or anything vintage, just find yourself some $5 dresser made from MDF. That way if it doesn't turn out well, you haven't lost much. Also, with MDF or other such materials, you are forced to be more creative since the firniture is very plain and boring. With a vintage or antique piece there is already (most of the time) so much interest that it doesn't call for all types of add-ons, just a new stain and varnish.
And there is definitely a learning period, which I'm still in, there are so many different materials and methods that it can become overwhelming. I still constantly make mistakes, but hopeful before I die I'll actually figure out this whole process. thriftjunkie
