If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you’ll know that it’s been crafting central around our house. This is mostly because I’ve convinced myself that I can’t get everything out of the boxes and placed where I want them until the crafts are done since they are functional furniture pieces. This one isn’t as functional as some of my others, but I did tackle sanding and restaining of the free console table that we got from Nick’s office. They were planning on junking the table so it has found a new home. It was my first time using my Rigid random orbital sander and it worked like a charm. The table was a light brown stain that screams office furniture, but after I sanded it down and used Minwax Dark Walnut stain I think it looks much more like a piece of furniture that you have at home. At least I hope so. For about $15, I was able to restain and Varathane Clear Semi-Gloss Polyurethane the table.
I stationed the new table next to our front door and decorated with a couple of vintage wine jugs and a candle holder that I got from estate sales for about $7 total. I was pretty pleased with these purchases. I just washed them up with some soap and water and they look like new.
