Coffee Table Restoration


Found an outdated coffee table at the used furniture store for $65 bucks. It was solid oak and had interesting glass cutouts. I immediately knew what I wanted to do with it to make it MINE.

Fits right in. Don't you just love when you picture something in your mind and it comes out just as planned?

Have a question about this project?

    Did sand the top for the poly shade stain to adhere? Is polyshade a brand name stain or a type of stain?

    Love this piece!
