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!
