I love finding discarded pieces of furniture in good condition. I found this solid maple coffee table beside a dumpster. There was nothing wrong with it other than a few scratches and the old 1970s country style look of it. I shoved it into the trunk of my car and brought it home to give it a brand new look.

Material List

  • Sandpaper in 80 grit, 100 grit and 220 grit
