Upscale antique drop table- stained and turquoise

This is a table that is super OLD! It was in pretty bad shape and over all ugly and I'm not sure why I didn't redo it sooner. Anyway, it was two different colors and I had to make repairs to it and fix the joints that were coming apart. So, I sanded her down and I've wanted to keep the wood on the top so I stained it with dark mahogany from minwax then went over it with a satin polyurethane from minwax for protection. On the bottom I put candle wax on the areas that I wanted the wood to peek through on and then scraped off the parts with wax with Morgans spreader. Ha. I love it!

My baby sister taught mister Biggs how to say cheeeeessssseeeee! That's what he was doing here. <3 him.

Redoing furniture

Blair's room. This is a dresser I redid. It matches his big boy bed so well!

Fear of man will prove to be a snare. Every time.

Snapshots of some of my thoughts from the word.
