Update TV trays
We have some older TV trays (not the best picture but you get the idea). I don't want to have to strip them down, and would like to keep the wood look vs paint. I've never used anything like antique wax, so didn't know what I'd have to do to the surface of the tray before using the wax (or if that's even the best option). Do I need to sand first? Lightly or all the way through the finish that's already there? I'd like to just darken it up a bit (paint the legs as well?). I'm basically open to ideas where there is very little prep work ahead of time (have other projects that will need lots of attention, so want this one to be easy!). We do use them so want to be sure the finish can withstand dishware, etc. Thanks for any suggestions!
