So you only thought my kitchen table was done! I was so close. All I had to do was put some coats of poly on it. I even bought the poly and was about to put it on the table. And then I saw just a few spots of stain that had come off from people eating at the table before I had the chance to put the poly on!! But I had run out of the stain I used. So I found some stain the previous owners had left for us. It was the same dark color, but not the same brand. I thought it wouldn't hurt to just touch up a few spots, and then I just kept going because it looked so good. So I put it on the entire table. What I failed to notice was the word oil on the bottle. Meanwhile, sixteen hours later when it was just as wet and sticky as the moment I put it on, I knew I had a problem. A big one.
So what started out as a simple little two hour project turned into something much bigger and more time consuming. A trip to Home Depot later for some furniture stripper and a husband who felt sorry for my mishap and this is what it looked like:
And this is AFTER he worked on the bathroom remodel all day. What a guy. Sometimes it's like he lives with I Love Lucy. Almost.
