So there was this table. We are going to use it as our coffee table in the basement. The issue was whether or not to refinish it. After spending a couple hours in the basement today relocating lighting and readying things for re-installing the baseboard, I decided to get outside and take on a small project.
The cigarette and glass mark stains have to go.
After an hour or so of elbow grease, a few pads of sandpaper, and then a coat of tung oil, the table is looking pretty good.
It still has some very faint scratches if you look very close. Hopefully they will make my wife happy as I think they give the piece a little character - just not as much as it had before. I think its going to look great in the rehabbed basement.
