This was one of my first major overhauls and to be honest it sat in my garage for a few weeks because I became attached and kept thinking I might ruin it. I found it at a yard sale for $20.00 and couldn't pass it up. I lean towards classic, clean, simple lines and legs. I decided to go for it on this one and strip it all the way down and stain it in my favorite deep chocolate (my own secret formula). Although I really like furniture from this period, I have never liked an orange or yellow finish on wood furniture. It is definitely dated and does not do any piece of wood justice. (Just my opinion)











After a week and a half of stripping, hand sanding, staining and waxing...Voila! The stain brings out the best in any wood piece and I am kind of attracted to wood-grains.
