Refinishing Old Table


There was a dirty table at my work’s old building upstairs. When we were moving, I asked if I could have it and some people asked me why I’d want that ugly thing. I saw some potential under the grit and grime and thought I could make it a kitchen table. I sanded off the scratches and dinks and ground in graphite for over 5 hours. I stained it with a red oak stain and then varnished it with 6 layers (sanding lightly in between each layer). Finally, it is finished and it turned out better than i hoped! Now all I need are some black chairs to go better with the table… but those cost money and can wait…. I love FREE!!!

Nice job Becky! That turned out really good. I’m impressed, all those months at the hardware store paid off!
