Much of the veneer was peeling off, so I just took the remainder off and gave the top a good sanding. I wanted to stain it a rich dark brown.
The legs, all six, got two coats of Annie Sloan's newest color, Florence. This is a wonderful rich turquoise color. A brown water based wash was given over the legs to give it some definition and aging. A lovely stencil was applied to the richly stained top in the same wonderful Florence color.
The whole table was finished in a durable silky finish.
