Refinish a dining room or kitchen table, and I finally got that opportunity. My husband helps some friends of ours move into a new apartment and they offered him some furniture. They didn't need anymore. When I got home from work, this table was waiting for me and despite its appearance, I was super excited finally, a chance to try my hand at refinishing. A table here is some before shots of the table. As you can see, the color is horrendous and the surface is marred by scuffs and watermarks, not to mention scratches.
This was my final round of sanding before I applied the third and final coat of poly acrylic, remember to always wipe down the table with a tack cloth after you finish sanding and before you apply the next coat of poly acrylic and always make sure the previous Coat is completely dry before moving on, I applied a total of three coats of poly acrylic to my table top. If you think you need more durability, you can always apply additional coats. However, I have been very happy with my tables resistance to wear and tear. I have left glasses with condensation sitting on it, and I've placed hot dishes on the wood, with no negative results, no white rings spills are easily wiped up and there are no scratches or dents from the finish.
The surface continues to be smooth and glossy with no chipping and the paint or the poly acrylic at the seams, with the leaves, are added. The poly acrylic ran down the cracks and dried the edge was roughing and even causing the seam to look wider and more conspicuous. Once I lightly sanded down these inner edges, both on the table and on the leaves, the pots fit together as smoothly and evenly as before. The last step to finishing your table is to rub the tabletop down with a piece of brown paper or newsprint.
This burnished azure polishes the table and helps get rid of any last flakes or impurities that may have stuck to the finish. This dining room table turned out to be everything I hoped and imagined it would be, even though this was the first time I tackled me finishing a piece of furniture, it didn't end horribly, but became a beautiful functional table that makes my heart happy every time I See it before we got this table, we were using a square card table for movement through the generosity of our friends and some DIY, a hard work and sweat.
We now have this wonderful table that graces the space at Center. I hope this tutorial has inspired you to tackle your own refinishing project. I found the experience to be immensely rewarding and a great adventure. It was well worth the hard work since we got the table as a gift. The only costs were the paint stain poly acrylic and the sandpaper. Even if you buy an old table at a thrift store garage sale doing it yourself can save you a lot of money compared to buying new, so go thriving or look at a table.
