When I told him it was free he says "well you can't argue with free" and he's absolutely right. The dull wooden top and hunter green legs were begging me to take them home and give them a new life. So I did.
The before picture
This color green should only appear on money.
The Citristrip doing it's magic =) Bye bye green.
Okay so the green was pretty stubborn. It stained the wood through and through. By this point I started thinking about making firewood out of it. Here's hoping the stain is stronger than the green!
And it was. The ebony stain covered up the mossy green leftover like a charm. The table top in a high gloss mohagany couldn't have turned out any better in my opinion.
And now I smile every time I walk past the living room that once sat with an empty gaping hole in the middle of it. What do you think the chances are that I can find a free rug I'm madly in love with? Yeah, I didn't think so either lol.
