Weekend Project: Coffee Table

This weekend (and then some) my kids were gone to a camp in Sterling, Alaska. 500 loong, faaar, distant miles away.

So THIS mom had to do something to keep busy. This is our coffee table. Years ago this was also a project. I tiled the top of it and framed it out with some trim. It was great. Very durable, looked nice. But 8 gazillion moves later, it needed help.

So the first thing I did, was knock off all the tile.

Then I sanded it down and put a coat of stain on it.

Another coat of stain, and 2 coats of poly's like a brand new coffee table. And about 20 pounds lighter too.
