I picked this table up a couple days ago for $10 off Craigslist. I’m going to sand down the top, stain and poly. Then I’ll paint the bottom with Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint! I see it finding a home in the basement for crafting.
Here are the before pictures. Trust me, I started second guessing myself the moment I saw it. But what did I have to lose? $10?
I couldn’t fight the urge to grab my sander and jump right in. Didn’t want to look at those marks any longer! This is as far as I got today… Need to get more sandpaper…
Um… WOW! I never would have thought that gorgeous grain was under all that gunk. I couldn’t see past the stains! Stay tuned for more updates on this bad boy.
