The time has come for me finish my table. I had applied a product called poly shades from minwax. It looked horrible and I thought I had ruined the table.
It was dark and thick and not to mention the fact that it did not match the legs. I wondered what I had gotten myself into.
After crying to Andy and telling him that I ruined it, I decided to be a big girl about it and see what I could do. So, I took out the sander once again and began performing surgery.
Well, as it turns out, the sanding made it look a lot better. So, this time I would apply the stain using an old t-shirt instead of a foam brush. And, WOW! Did it work better!!
Don't you think? So, I did a few coats with the t-shirt and let it dry in between. And finally, she was ready for the finishing product. The polyurathane.
I was even able to touch up her legs. Long and lean and blemish free. I wish it was that simple for my legs! :)
So, she's ready for her clearcoat and I think she looks wonderful. I hope to get it done by the end of the weekend as Andy is heading out of town and won't be around to help me should I need it. I'll show you the finished product when I get it done. Wish me luck!
