It's probably safe to say that we've all come across a piece of furniture (or two... or three...) that has seen better days. We want to rescue them from the landfill or a bad paint job, but the wood looks beyond salvage. Well, I'm here to show you that many of those pieces are hidden treasures, just waiting for someone like YOU to come along and apply the TLC necessary to restore the wood to its former glory. Not everything needs to be painted. In fact, I will usually try to save the wood on the top surface with stain rather than paint over it.
Take a look at this sad little table I brought back to life:
Just look at the mess on the 'BEFORE' photo with all the mold, black and white stains. No one thought I could get this in shape suitable for staining.
