BEFORE: pretty beat up, many layers of stain and poly, not to mention 40 years of wax build up from furniture polish. I should mention this table came out of an old convent, my MIL scored this and lots of other loot, including the church pew in my kitchen, when the convent was closing shop. And trust me, as a product of Catholic school, nuns love furniture polish.
AFTER: a good scrubbing, lots of sanding, a can of antique white spray paint, some walnut stain, glaze, poly, and a cute little glass knob.
The table doesn't have a home yet...for now it is in the powder room.
We have been very distracted...let's just say there could be greener pastures in our future...pastures being the key word here! We will know more on Friday afternoon...keep good thoughts for us!
