I'm going to have a look. Hey, good morning Christine. This is the table that gets all the use, right?

If you want a beautiful looking, and feeling, piece at the end of your efforts, there are times when it pays off to prep your piece by either sanding, stripping or priming…or a combination of all three.

All of the stripping, sanding, and staining! No more excuses my friends. For more information, please see my disclosure page.
