A few weeks back I picked up a set of end tables and coffee table for my mom's gameroom. The green is way too country but it's just the style I was looking for. I decided to repaint the legs in flat black paint and then strip the tops for a more rustic feel.
Here are all the legs, primed waiting for paint.
For the tops I used a chemical stripper to take off the stain. I gave them a good sanding and then sealed them with a poly. I wanted to have them a more rustic look. Here they are with the black legs. Amazingly easy and they look fantastic!
