Before and After

One of my new hobbies is restoring junk. I found this in the dumpster a couple of weeks ago. The strip around the edges was coming off, it had tracks running along the inside of the table, and the color wouldn't match anything else in my house.

Because I am pregnant (SURPRISE IN CASE YOU DIDN'T KNOW!! We are 5 1/2 months along) Jeremy stripped the finish off for me.

I sanded while Talmage kept it dusted.

Then he helped me sand. He LOVED it :)

What it looked like after we sanded it

I decided to stain the top cherry wood and paint the bottom a gloss black. I didn't realize I needed to put a primer on before the paint so I ended up having to re-sand it after I painted it the first time, but I think it turned out nice :)
