I was lucky enough to be given this table by a good friend of mine. She thought I could use it for a craft table or something for out in the garage. I don't think so, this is too nice to just stick in a corner. I just love how the wood goes in all the different directions it just adds a little more character to it. I decided to go outside of my comfort zone a little bit and stain it, I have tried in the past with staining and usually end up having my husband finish the project or fix my mistakes.
Yeap the before is not so pretty but I could see her potential. Look at that fantastic pattern on top.
The after, it turned out pretty darn good. There are a few flaws but I won't point them out, lol.
The friend that gave me this table is moving away to what seems like a million miles away, in Australia. I am glad that I will have this and everyday I see it I will remember her and what an incredible friend she has been to me.
