I feel like this is the most sought after look of 2019/2020 for furniture.

it’s timeless and I probably won’t have to worry about it going out of style for the next couple of years, 10 years at least..

I got this table off of Marketplace, whole set with 4 chairs for $300. The chairs alone sell for over $200, SUPER WORHT IT!

This is the before - it’s Pottery Barn

The table comes in different finishes, one of them is the exact one I wanted, but what I found was the brown/reddish color.

The finish I wanted..

This is the same table on the website..

Stripping the finish

I used a off brand stripper from Home Depor and the whole table turned white and dried up, it was scary and for a moment I thought I had ruined the whole thing...

I went back and bought Citristrip to re-apply and start over.

The wire brushes’s best friend

That’s me.. I did a lot of scrapping and brushing to take off the finish from the wood grain.


after I finished stripping all the stain, I lightly white washed it and waxed with a light aged stain.

This project was very fun and honestly one that I don’t want to repeat for a while because stripping furniture is just a pain..
