Refinishing an heirloom dining set

I’ve done a fair amount of refinishing in my day from handrails and staircases to furniture pieces and I can honesty say that this one was the most stressful.

This country style dining set had a lot of sentimental value to the client, so when I took on the task of refinishing it to give it a more modern, elegant look, the stress set in. What if it doesn’t turn out? What if I ruin it? It was the first piece of furniture that they ever bought and it had a lot of memories attached to it.

It was a long, tedious task that in the end turned out pretty good, after many hours of sanding and stripping and staining and re-staining.

This set looks so much nicer and fits the space beautifully.
