We got this beautiful table when we moved into this house from my Aunt Teddie. It is a wonderful table. However it had quite a few nicks and dings and the top just needed to be redone. Upon accepting the table, I knew it would be a project. Well here it is a year later, and I finally got it done. I like to tackle these kind of projects. They are daunting and huge but the after its done its worth it. I decided to just paint over it instead of restraining it but it still took forever. There is so many nooks and crannies on this table that the prep was extremely time consuming.
