This morning I saw an ad on Craigslist that really took me back. The Duncan Phyfe above is a dead ringer for the table that became my first big refinishing project, my trial by fire. Because of its condition, the table is selling for just $30, which makes it an ideal candidate for someone like me with more ambition than brains who wants to get his or her hands dirty and learn a helluva lot about refinishing. And while I’m definitely tempted, I don’t have the space or inclination to take this on right now. What about you? You might end up with something you can be proud of, I know I was when my table, below, finally emerged from the fire.
Looking at yesterday’s post, I realize I’m ricocheting from the sublime to the ridiculous here, but hey, life’s like that sometimes.
