Kitchen Table Refinishing


It was time to refinish the kitchen table.I used an orbital sander with 80-grit to remove the old finish/stains/glitter/marker/glue, then 120-grit to smooth it. I stained with one coat of Minwax Golden Oak, and put on 3 coats of Minwax water-based polyurethane, sanding with 220-grit in-between coats of poly. The finish would have been more durable if I had used regular oil-based polyurethane, but I wanted low-odor and fast drying, due to the fact that I was doing it indoors, and have cats and young children..
