I broke about 6 traffic laws turning around when I saw this out in front of a yard sale. It was in decent shape but someone had left a potted plant or something on top of it and the finish on the tray top was totally gone, stain was faded out, and the rim on the tray was coming off too from the water damage. An extra $5 in shop supplies and 4 hours of elbow grease and there’s another table in the living room.
Added some of the before pics, the one in the shop with the table together was taken after an alcohol rubdown which minimized the appearance of the water damage, but wasn’t enough, knew I had to strip it. Bottom just got a 320 sanding light staining to cover nicks & dings & three shots of poly
-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it
