I have waited for well over a year to refinish our dining room table. I love this table so much! The solid oak, the claw feet, leaf and room for eight....it is just a good piece of furniture to own! We did some trade work for this table so upon arriving in our home it was gently used. The varnish on the tabletop was wearing off and whenever something warm was set on it it would stick! Yum!
We started out by sanding all of the remaining finish from the top.
To create a unique look we taped off the lip of the table.
Soooo? What do you think? I LOVE IT!! After a few coats of polyurethane and several light sandings....I can't stop admiring!
