Fun with Furniture

I’ve been refinishing some furniture recently. On each piece I have used a slightly different stripping and paint (stain, actually) application technique.
Please let me know in the comments which you like best and why. I could use some input before I declare anything finished and slap the poly on top. The rustic, whitewashy look is intentional (in case you’re thinking “Uh….you missed a spot”). image

      I guess I should have written “before” and “after”- I was actually undoing the ‘natural’ wood look, removing the lacquer and repainting with a whitewash style stain. I will however, keep that in mind as I continue! Thank you!
