She wasn’t much to look at at first. And the finish was really bad. ! So bad in fact that I forgot to take a really good before pic.

I used the shellac technique for this one so that the dark stain wouldn’t bleed through the light color.

I stained the top in Minwax Dark Walnut. This is one of my favorite stain colors, it’s nice and dark.  And I sealed the top with Minwax Polycrylic in Satin.

This piece still chipped quite a bit, despite using the shellac. Some pieces just play around like that.

I sealed this piece using clear wax to seal in all the chippy goodness.

This one didn’t last long when I took it to my retail space. It quickly became someone else’s favorite!
