Accent Table with Wood Filler Top

4 years ago

This little table was in awful shape when I found it.

I stripped the wood veneer top and covered it with several layers of wood putty.  After curing for a few weeks I sanded the top and edges until they were smooth.  To give the top some color I wipe on Minwax stain in chestnut and then wiped it off.  I layered three coats of stain which were wiped off to create a glaze like finish.  Finally I finished the whole thing with Miss Mustard Seed Clear wax and buffed to a nice mellow sheen.

What I really love about it is the the little secret drawer.  The drawer was missing and had to be replaced.  A nice place to tuck a secret note or key!
