Old Round Table Restoration

I was given the task to restore and paint an old round table and put a mirror on the top.

1. First I remove all the brass hardware – fix all broken and misaligned parts and sand the table to remove the old varnish
2. I cover the newly exposed wood with two coats of primer.
3. Painted the table in black as instructed by the customer with 4 coats of black satin paint.
4. I brushed, buffed and clean the bronze hardware to fresh new look.
5. Made a circular top base to accept the mirror.
6. I varnished the whole table with 4 coats of lacquer.
7. Restore the brass hardware back in their place.
8. Fitted a gold tint mirror on the top

Hope to have another satisfied customer after this restoration and I did !!!

Thanks for watching
