Refinishing our round end table

DSC07641

This table has been sitting around for a while.

Now, it was more than time to tackle it.  :)

When we got it, it had old tape, water spots, scratches, hardware missing…

By the way, could you tell our house was a mess?  :)

Before sanding it, I got rid of the wood piece around the perimeter because 1/3 was missing.

After sanding it down, I applied the mix 3 parts of vegetable oil and 1 part of apple cedar vinegar to take care of the water damage.

It worked! But the wood got a reddish tone…  :(

Soooo, I went to stain it with dark walnut.

Hopefully tomorrow, I can wax it and add some upholstery tacks.  :)

Faz o maior tempão que esta mesa anda do mesmo jeito.

Agora, chegou a hora de tocar este projeto para frente.  :)

Quando a compramos, tinha fita adesiva, marcas de água, riscos e sem os puxadores…

A propósito, deu para notar a bagunça?  :)

Antes de lixar, removi a tirinha de madeira em volta de todo o perímetro porque 1/3 estava danificado e faltando.

Depois de lixar, apliquei uma mistura de 3 partes de óleo vegetal e mais 1 parte de vinagre branco para remover as marcas de água.

Funcionou! Mas, a madeira ficou num tom mais avermelhado…  :(

Aí, passei o stain escuro “dark walnut”.

Se der tudo certo, amanhã, poderei dar a demão de cera e adicionar umas tachinhas.  :)
