Finally my coffee table has been completed! Took a little while but well worth the wait. Real life priorities come first sometimes.
Let’s do a quick flash back to before.
When I applied my first stain of miniwax red mahogany the perimeter of the table looked great but the inside burled walnut took on a pinkish tone. Ok now what? As my husband is looking over my shoulder. “No pink in the livingroom” he says.
“Mom it looks pink.” My kids say. Oh boy they are paying attention.
**#!”**@## !!I say.
SSssooo out came the sander again. If you are going to do it you have to it right.
I tried a few of different stain color choices.
1 coat of tung oil and 3 coats of miniwax urethane to make sure this table was going to stand the test of time with my family.
You can have beautiful things in your home just make sure they can withstand the test of time. Chances are if they are already in good condition at 50-100 years old they will last another 100.
Think of your family and what would really fit to your family’s lifestyle.
