I was helping my friend Eric paint his new room one day and he was going to be getting rid of this unique corner table his dad had had since he was young. I had to snag it before it was too late - I'd never seen a table like it before. It has a cute, little front drawer for some small storage. Stamped on the bottom was 1956. I asked my dad's wife, Debbie, who does tons of amazing things with furniture and is my go-to-expert on refinishing furniture (among many other things), and got some great advice and direction from her on both how to prep the wood for finishing, and refinishing the table. She has a great knowledge of what to be on the look out for and how to prepare for your project - although she's no stranger to making a mistake and moving on from it!

Here is a top view of the table. The rings and state of the table are really shown in the "Before" photo.
