I'm totally kicking myself for not taking a before picture of this table. It was almost black when I got it, and covered in a very thick layer of dusk. I had originally planned to paint the entire table, but once I got it cleaned and the legs and bottom painted, I could see a glimmer of the wood under the original dark stain. I sanded down the top and used a red tinted minwax to bring it back to life. I love how mod it turned out, so I wanted to share a quick photo with you!
