Found this table at the side of the road and decided to have a go at giving it new life.
Took it home and did the old brown paper treatment on it.
Here are the before and after pics.
Finished table in it's final resting place.
Before - in pretty rough shape but good bones.
Sanding to make the surface smooth again

    What is brown paper tx

    • Gail Salminen Gail Salminen on Mar 14, 2015
      @Jane it is the same as is used to wrap parcels or that the grocery store hands out if you ask for paper bags. I got mine at Walmart in the stationary section.

    I got mine which I used on my kitchen floor from HD. Builders grade floor covering laid on new wood floors to protect them during the building process. It comes in a large roll.
