Original Shanty2Chic project it was inspired by:
Time to Complete: About a month in my spare time
Total Cost: About $400 with lots of scraps left over
Sanded and sanded and sanded. Then applied a wood sealer, then Minwax Espresso stain, then used Minwax Polyshades in Espresso to highlight areas (it’s much darker). For the table top, I did a technique called rubbing out after several coats of Deft Semi Gloss Brushing Lacquer. The technique involves wet sanding with 500 grit, 1000 grit and 2000 grit and then buffing with wax. The result is the smoothest finish! I wish you could feel my pictures!
