I found this little accent table in the back room of a consignment shop - and it was in rough shape but I saw potential. The varnish was yellowed and cracked and the veneer had come away from the top in a couple of areas. After cleaning, stripping, sanding, fixing and priming, I began the fun part - bringing it back to life.

After I layered two colors, I did a little dry brushing to add dimension and character. See video below:

"Could someone tell me if you are a beginner, never redone any furniture at all, where is a good place to start?

Thanks for any ideas or information anyone can provide, I really appreciate it!"  ~ Carbo from West Lafayette, IN
