A lady called me and said she had 2 tables to give away if I was interested. I LOVE when that happens. She wasn't sure if this would be to my liking, well it's not, I don't like it, I LOVE it!!! This is actually exactly my taste, well a little shabby, but otherwise, Awesome!
The top was in very bad shape, the varnish was chipping right off. I sanded and scraped it, there was a big white stain, but luckily it didn't affect the wood.
The hardest part was scraping off the edges. The finish chipped off, but it took a lot of scraping.
I mixed some brown gel stain with a little black stain and stained the top. I painted the legs smoked turquoise.
When it was dry I polyurethaned the top and antiqued the legs with ebony stain.
I think this one might be a keeper, I'm not sure where I will put it, but don't know if I can part with it. Time will tell I guess.
