|The top before, with yellowed wood and cigarette burns|
|Another view of the tabletop - it was a hot mess|
|The chairs and covers were filthy|
|The Before on the chair detail|
We got to work on the top, cleaning it up as best we could and sanding the finish off, which was very labor intensive (mostly for hubby). We did the top and the side, but since we had already decided to paint the pedestal and the apron(?) part of the table, we left the finish on that part.
|The edge had to be sanded by hand|
|We found the PERFECT fabric for the seats!|
After all the painting was done I used a stain to accentuate the detail in the chairs, pedestal and bottom of the table.
|The chairs looked better already with a couple coats of paint|
|The stuff we used to create the new finishes|
|It looks fantastic in our dining room!|
