This client hired another company and they did a horrible job.
They were not professional refinishers. Surfaces Rx restored the furniture following refinishing best practices. We stripped off the old finish, sanded out the swirls and scratches from the other refinishers, repaired damaged veneer, restrained, sealed and sprayed two coats of Mohawk Matte 20 Lacquer finishing.
Surfaces Rx removed the old finish by hand-sanding the nightstand. And you can see the grain coming out and both the swirls and scraches fade away.
