I have finally finished building my craft station for now and can commence progression of the case :)

Going to have to make a sample pallet of my stains to compare which color(s) work best with the aged look of the hardware.

I am curious what you mean by polish? Does that differ from varathaning it?
I'd love some ideas from people about what kind of protective outsidings others would use . Pros/cons.

The light blue and the white are out. I love the one that has nearly the same color like the HQ furniture, this orange-ish brown. On the left side, one of the two in the front.

Agreed the white is just a no. Can't imagine how dirty it would look after time with the white. And the blue is just too intense.

I'm really leaving towards those 2 front ones on the left as well. I may grab a couple more brown variations of stain from the shop. Originally I was i visioning a dep rich red. But seeing the cherry now with the hardware is just too dark.
