While we were moved out of our home for 7 weeks I took on a project. Our dining room table was that horrible outdated golden (orangy) oak color, so I brought out my trusty spray paint and MinWax Mahogany Gel Stain. I still need to put on a varnish to protect the finish, but for now...here is the before & after.
I want to get a round piece of glass cut to sit on top of the table to protect it. There is a leaf that we use a couple times a yr, but the majority of the time we just keep it how it is.
