Table Trouble

Remember this table that I had such trouble refinishing? It took a lot of hair-pulling to finally get a really nice looking finish.

But the trouble wasn’t over. Here’s what happened just before a potential buyer was supposed to come and look at it.




I picked at one little spot that looked funky.




It’s kinda’ like when you get a really bad sunburn and you can’t stop yourself from picking and peeling all that dead skin.

    Oh mooooooooooo!!!
    I “peel” your pain.
    Can’t wait to see how you fix this because I know you will!

    • Ha, very funny! Yes, it’s almost finished (famous last words)!

    I guess at least it happened before the potential buyer bought it and took it home! I’m sure you will be able to fix it. :)

    • Thanks, Stephanie. The “incident” happened just a short time before the appointment. I was praying she would cancel on me, and she did! :)

  6. Ohhh, Nooooohhhh. That is sad. Looking forward to your solution and redo.
