Jamie and I have wanted to refinish our dining room table ever since we got it on craigslist. It was only $30, but there was definitely a reason for that. There was plenty of gunk and stains on the surface, plus the legs were scuffed up. We also have been meaning to hang a lamp above the table instead of sitting a table lamp on top. So we've finally gotten around to tackling our little dining room project, and now we can show you how it all went.
The first thing we had to do was strip the surface of the table. It was actually pretty fun, and we got to wear some sweet gear.
Once we finished that, we had to sand and stain the wood. Even after just the sanding, the table looked so much nicer than it was before.
