Named for my Mother-in-law, Bertha was in rough shape and sat in our storage shed all winter.
Bumps, dings and scratches made this out-dated coffee table flipping fodder. I needed to make her worthy of her name. To begin with, I was a little intimidated by the very dark stain. Bleed through can a problem and sometimes it doesn't show up until after the final topcoat. You hear horror stories all over the Internet about tannins bleeding through.
