Up to date Stop Table

But these days, it’s all about this $8 beauty…

Dated, orange…time for a manufacturer new glimpse.


I pulled this from my stash to give it a consider.

bottle of paint stripper

I preferred that it was biodegradable AND h2o cleanup. Of course!

I brushed it on and covered it with plastic wrap then allow it sit for an hour or so.

I came back again to look at and it was doing work excellent.

scraping off stripper

I scraped off all of the complete and obtained most of the stain out. Wonderful.
AND the extremely finest part…I cleaned up the residue with water! That was a major earn.
So considerably simpler (and a great deal much less substances) than cleansing up with mineral spirits, and many others.

I’ll test it out on some thing painted following and report back. 

I then sanded the major and base shelf.

sanded wood top

sanded bottom shelf wood

Getting rid of that end absolutely sure saved me a ton of time sanding.

I cleaned up all the dust from sanding and then utilized my fave, Driftwood Stain & Ending oil to give it a brand name new color and glance.

I utilized only just one coat and enable it dry.

When it was dry, I cleaned up the legs and the rest of the wooden with a TSP option. Then I applied Ultra Grip and allow it sit for the relaxation of the afternoon.

I adopted that by taping up the bottom shelf about the legs and portray it in a quite warm-toned white.
I didn’t want it dazzling white so this was the perfect color.

Oh! But as I was cleansing people legs, I recognized that it was lacking a piece of wooden trim. Bummer. (scroll up to the “before” photograph to see the items that I’m talking about)

missing wood piece

I hadn’t found that when I purchased it. Oh perfectly, I just made the decision to eliminate them all considering the fact that they weren’t seriously structurally needed.
And I basically imagine it appears to be like additional contemporary, a lot less dated, with those people gone. So acquire-gain!

I stuffed the holes leftover with wooden putty and sanded them to paint.

I approach to give the total matter (top and bottom shelf integrated) a coat or two of Matte Tough Coat. I want to permit it get rid of a little bit in advance of making use of that while.

In the meantime, right here is the up-to-date stop desk with its manufacturer new appear.
