Waiting for the good stuff

Here are a few more shots of the French-style coffee table after adding one more coat of stain (three coats in all) and two coats of Wipe On Poly. I was going to leave the stain the way it was, but noticed a couple of smudges (probably from my fingers) and decided to slap one more coat to even the top out. I think the wood looks even richer now.

I'm bringing it to the shop tomorrow afternoon. Sadly, I still have not bought any new furniture. Today I dropped by Goodwill and there was nothing but junk. I may have some luck on craigslist but that all depends on whether people get back to my emails. Hopefully I'll have a dresser and a chair or two coming to me soon. Until then, I'll catch up on everyone else's blogs to see what they're working on!


  1. It looks fantastic! Have you tried yard sales? The weekend is almost here. Happy hunting!

  2. I really love how this turned out!
