Here are my new black end tables and coffee table for the lake house basement living room. Craigslist find for $25.00 each! SCORE!
This is one of the end tables covered in mahogany lacquer (yuck!)
I have come to know that when ever I see Mahogany thick lacquered furniture it has 3 things.
1) real Mahogany beautiful legs 2) some other type of wood used for the top and sides 3) crap rubber edging that can only be painted.
I figured if I had to strip it off again I was going to reapply more stain first to see what it would look like. To my surprise it looked great! This is what 2 coats looks like. On the second coat I rubbed it in and then immediately buffed it off to remove any leftover stain.
The end table to the left has one application of the oil based Ebony stain, the one to the right has 3.
Here is one of the end tables in it's forever home.
Someday.....the forever home will get finished!
What do you think?
