Stained Espresso Table
But initial, let’s have a minimal refresh of this table.
I determined to get rid of the end from the leading and refinish it so I would not paint about those pretty inlays.
This was an outdated bottle of Citristrip when it really applied to perform definitely very well.
I really don’t use it anymore. They adjusted the system and it just does not do the job the way it employed to.

In any case, off arrived that finish to expose that gorgeous wood underneath.
I assumed I required to stain it this color… (water-based stain)

Then I imagined I’d whitewash it…
Nope! Ha! I didn’t like that possibly. Off came that as well.
I allow it dry overnight and decided to go with oil-primarily based stain as an alternative.
I applied a pre-stain initially, then Antique Walnut, wiping back effectively, then Classic Gray above that, also wiping again.
And WOW, it arrived out the ideal shade!
I painted the foundation white with a bit of distressing.
