Deployment Project #28....Refinishing an Antique Table

This table belonged to my grandmother, and was handed down to my several years ago.

While it was pretty the way it was, it had some water rings on it, and needed a little TLC.

So, I took it out back and sanded it down with my FUN electric mouse sander!!!(Love that thing!)  Once it was sanded down, I put 3 coats of stain on it.

You did a great job on it. Looks SO much better!

Thank you for your comment on my post yesterday. It felt a little weird putting the post out there so I was relieved that it resonated with some. Your story is just another example of why I'm thankful for just having a day with ordinary frustrations. I wanted to say thank you so much, too, to you, your husband and children for the sacrifices that you're making for us. I hope you have a great day!
