182|365 The Table Is Stripped (7/5/11)
This evening Keith and I stripped the finish off of a table that was his grandmother’s. It’s a drop leaf style table with only 3 chairs remaining and has been in our garage/den for years. The finish looked horrible and it had some cuts on the edge from a saw. I should have taken a before photo but I got too anxious to get going with stripping it before I changed my mind.
We can now see the beautfiul wood especially on the arched legs. We still have to sand the rest of the table and the chairs haven’t been stripped yet. Keith says the wood is mahogany and the table top is a veneer. If it looks as good as the legs, it’s going to be gorgeous. After that, we need to decide what tint to stain and whether to strip the chairs or sand and then paint them.
