I usually don't care for most of today's tacky re-painted older furnishings, and I especially can't stand repainted fine antiques and fine reproductions. But, these vintage bed stands were nothing special, and now they are lovely! The difference is the appropriateness of the new design with the original shape and size, and the quality of the workmanship. That said, I think I would have done a bit less distressing, if any at all. Re-painted furniture doesn't all have to look 'shabby.'
