To Paint or Not Paint....Part Deux

Remember this post, where I wasn't sure how to refinish the top of this table? Well, I finally decided. I admit, it doesn't look that much different than before.

The top certainly looks darker. I ended up using a nice darker stain.

I repainted the base an off white color similar to what it was already, distressed it and antiqued it.

I just love these brass claw feet!

I tried and tried to sand out this ring on the top. I couldn't get it out and decided to stain over it anyway.

At first, I was really disappointed with how dark the stain became with a finish on it. But now, I think it gives it character. What do you think?

Don't settle for dull, live a refinished life!

  1. I like it! It's hard to find an old piece without a flaw or two. I like to think it tells the story of the piece. I usually add a graphic to the top then your eye is not drawn to the one flaw so much. Nice job. Dee from My Painted Stuff.
