The lovely wife came home with this little table with the intention of painting it but I convinced her it would look better if we just stripped and refinished it. It was a simple little project. My wife did the stripping and then I scraped and sanded when she was done. For the finish we just applied a few coats of Danish Oil and finished with some wax.

You got the fun job! What method did you use to strip the furniture?

We used Circa 1850 Furniture Stripper. Just painted it on, let it sit a bit and then wiped it off with rags. It actually did a great job so there wasn’t much left to scrape afterwards. I really did get the easy part.

Circa 1850 is actually the brand name. Here is a link to their website

Thanks Mauricio. I really didn’t like the idea of painting it.
