This mid-century dining set had a lot of cosmetic issues, but good bones. And priced at just $40 at a yard sale, it was worth trying to bring it back to it’s former glory. It’s amazing what some sanding and a whole lot of elbow grease can get you.   

Antique Plaza Mesa completely refinished it and reupholstered the chairs. Now the mid-century bones shine through again , without all those awful water rings.
