NO PAINTING FOR U - chippy yellow table


Sitting all alone at a church sale I couldn't resist this little table,


with it's arborite top and glossy thick paint cover up.


I started by scrapping and peeling all the white paint and dirt off.


That's when I found the original pale yellow paint underneath.


I removed the arborite and belt sanded the top smooth,


then moved to the body sanding every inch of the soft yellow paint,
before adding a stain wash.



The entire table got a coat of  walnut gel stain before it was polish back.


See how the yellow and the wood stand out now.
It's finished with wipe on poly and wax.

  3. what a unique piece. So happy to see the yellow underneath. I'm not sure why I didn't realize that there would be wood underneath the arborite :)

  6. Your table turned out great! Did you use the gel stain on the sides as well or a regular stain?
