There’s an area in our neighborhood that people can drop off large things they want to dispose of, so Nik and I venture over there to scope it out once in a while. This past week we found a couple of nice tables that we promptly claimed and dragged home: The weather wasn’t too bad last weekend, so Nik got to work on the smaller table. He stripped and sanded the top, then stained it dark walnut. We used the blue paint that I had refinished a side table with a couple weeks ago, and then I sealed the whole piece up with water-based poly. I love the carved wood details this delicate little table has. It was a perfect (free!) weekend project.
