An Unexpected Gem

Recently, I went on a search for new furniture projects, hitting yard sales, Salvation Army and Goodwill for options, hoping to find hidden treasure.  When I spotted this lonely two-tiered table at Goodwill for $15, I had no idea how amazing it was underneath the scratched and water-stained dark brown finish.

Here are some before photos:

As soon as I started to sand the top shelf with 100 grit sandpaper, I realized  that this table was going to be gorgeous!  The top shelf was detailed with two toned wood, lighter on the edge and darker in the middle.  The lower table top was also blessed with beautiful quality wood.  It was gong to be similar to a mirror I had refinished last March.

After sanding:

After applying one coat of MinWax Polycrylic Protective Finish (clear gloss), the table was ready – simple, elegant and stunning.
