I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite hobbies is to scour thrift stores for forgotten furniture pieces. Occasionally I’m lucky enough to find a gem in the rough to transform & this happened to be one of those times…
The top was a chipping, dinged up mess and the speckled paint & stain finish was atrocious! That’s probably why I was able to snag it for only $9! I was ecstatic to say the least, well, until I thought of all the work ahead… something I dread and, at the same time, thoroughly enjoy doing… if that makes any sense!
I happily lugged the table home & got to work sanding, staining, and lacquering the top & priming, painting, distressing, and waxing the bottom! With every step I finished it gave me the motivation to continue. Watching furniture come back to life is so rewarding to me… the beautiful end result makes all the splinters, cuts, and cursing worth it!
Please comment on your current projects! I look forward to sharing more detailed, step-by-step refinishing posts with you in the future! Happy DIY’ing to y’all! *running off to find my next thrift store beauty*
