This drop leaf end table was an interesting(?) shade of brown. It has great detail and a lot of versatility, so it was a great candidate for rehab.
I sanded the top down to bare wood and scuffed up the rest of the table. Black is always a popular look and it brings out the great details, so it got two coats of homemade black chalk paint, some distressing and then two coats of polycrylic for protection. Was it worth saving?
