Here is the coffee table in the state that she left it, not much done.
Here I am putting stripper on it. I remember doing furniture refinishing in high school, and I remember that I liked doing it. I think I would like doing more, but when you have a job outside of the home, it's hard to find the extra time to do it.
This is a picture of the detail on the leg. It was so dark and dirty before you really couldn't see it. It is actually a beautiful table.
Here is the leg finished, it looks so much better. She prefers darker furniture than I do. This was after 4 coats of a dark walnut stain. If I was doing the table for me, I probably would have stopped with 3 coats.
