Ok, sorry for the cheesy title, I just love alliteration.
Dan (mostly) and I recently fixed up a table. Our first big house project together. Sanding, staining, varnishing. $100 of materials later we have a spruced up dining room table. Here are the before and after pics.
We bought enough stain and varnish to do a few tables and chairs and boxes and anything wood. So let the sanding begin.
