1970s oak coffee table refurb

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The table is gorgeous and beautifully made and only cost me 15 (a friend cut the legs down as a favour and we already had some finishing wax) - a modern equivalent would be around 200. I love it! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't let layers of old varnish put you off - there could be a treasure underneath just waiting to be revealed!

What you will need

  • A friend to cut the legs down
  • sander & paper
  • wax finishing polish
