We scored this great brass base from Craigslist last year and the top that came with it was literally paper thin and mint green. Not really our style. So we were given this wooden top and while the size was perfect for our little dining corner, I haven’t loved how shiny it was. I don’t know why it took me so long to get my hands on the sander and go to town on this thing but it finally happened and although it’s a subtle change, I’m really happy with the results.
ps. Doesn’t it help “afters” look so much better when there’s a beautiful floral arrangement on the table? I thought so too.
