The Table that will be....

The Table that will be....

FB Maretplace tends to get me "a lot".  I purchased this beauty in 2002 with intentions to start right away.  Life happens and now it is 2 years later.  It's time for a makeover!  I love the medallion on the top and the sturdiness of the table.  It will return to the breakfast nook soon...all "dolled up".  

 

She is a litte rough around the edges, but not for long.  Stay tuned!  

The top of this table is veneer.  Yes, you can sand* veneer.  You just need to know a couple of things....1 - start with 100 grit sandpaper, 2 - let the sander do the work (I used a Craftsman 5" Orbital Sander), and 3 - Use a 150 grit sandpaper for a smooth finish (after removing all of the orginal stain/varnish).  

I will continue around the edges of the table, so that will be next.  

 

*When sanding, be in a well-ventilated area, use a respirator or filtered face-mask that covers your nose and mouth and wear safety glasses.
