Here's Diane's table before...
Diane said she could tell it had spent some time exposed to the weather and there was also a big burn mark on it's top. They weren't quite sure what they had until they opened the drawers and saw a stamp indicating it was an "Ethan Allen" brand table.
Most of the original finish was gone from this piece. Diane stripped and sanded what remained. She repaired some cracks in the top and the legs. Once that was complete, she settled on the color combination of cream on the bottom with a dark stained top. After staining and painting, she added new hardware and almost called it a day on this piece, until she met up with all of our furniture flippers who gather here and on our Furniture Flippin' Facebook page. Through all of our conversations, Diane learned about glazing and waxing. She knew that was exactly what this table needed to add some depth to the finish. So, she glazed and waxed it and voila! Here's the finished table...
What an amazing difference! It looks fantastic. I love how graceful those legs look now in that color.
