Unbelievable Mid-Century Modern Coffee Table Makeover

A while back Beck snagged this walnut, Drexel Declaration coffee table at an auction. Since then, the table had been waiting patiently in her garage for her attention. And attention it needed. The finish had yellowed over time, plus there were the expected scratches and ware on a piece 50+ years old. Recently, Beck found some time and got down to business. With Formby’s and fine-grit sandpaper, she made the table over in an unbelievable way. Check out the ‘after’:

WHY is this makeover unbelievable? Because, although the finish did have its issues, Beck didn’t paint it, wall paper it, or stencil it. Nope, with a lot of know-how and patience, she brought the table back to its original life.
