This picture was taken after we stripped and sanded the table.
Here I am putting the first coat of stain on the table. I was so very nervous!!!
Jason figured out a way to allow the table legs to stand up, which made for easier staining and poly-ing.
This is how we lived for about three months. It was horrible. I don't know how people refinish their kitchens from months on end. We ate at this tiny table in our living room. Horrible.
