Drab to Fab Furniture Upcycling »
InstructionsWe really wanted the top of the project to be a wood stain so because the table had a THICK dark cherry finish we had to use a heavy duty stripper to get it down to bare wood.

What was your inspiration?
I found a similar sofa table on pinterest and just knew that it was the look I wanted for mine as well!
What are you most proud of?
It took us hours to strip that thing down to bare wood. :) The top came out so nicely!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Before taking Anne Maries class the idea of painting a piece of furniture was super intimidating. I did not use all the products that she uses. I just used what I had on hand. More than anything her class has given me the courage to just jump in-- get my feet wet and my hands dirty! Just go for it! Trial and error is the best way to learn!
