Once upon a time, in a not so far away living room, were three french provincial tables. Much like Cinderella, they too were in need of some help. They were fortunate indeed for a fairy design mother appeared and gave them each a fabulous makeover! The old finish showed years of wear and neglect. So, she sanded them down, not with her wand but with her new orbital sander. Once with a 60 grit, the second with a 100 and lastly with a 220 grit. Now feeling smooth as fine silk they received a gorgeous new coat in an exquisite pickled oak finish. To complete this magical transformation 3-4 coats of water based poly in a regal satin. Oh how they sparkled and once again shined, the tables paired not with two glass slippers but with mercury glass lamps on each side. Now this tale is over I’m sorry to say, but these three little darlings will live happily for all the rest of their days.
