It's not really clear what problem you are trying to solve.  You say 
both column defaults should be NULL.  Well, evidently they are.

NULL::timestamp without time zone
NULL::character varying

Those are NULL values.  Are you confused by the information displayed 
after the double colon?  That's just Postgres' way of showing you what 
the data type of the column is.

Thank you,
