Side table transformation…

As a huge lover of vintage and one of the kind items I have membership with all the Flea Markets and Second Hand stores in my area:) I am kidding about the membership but I visit those places on a regular basis ( maybe too regular) but I don’t want to miss anything interesting and I noticed  growing competition over the years! Most of my treasures require some kind of TLC in order to bring them to life but all the efforts are worth the final effect. This Summer I was very lucky to find a beautiful side table. A little scratched and dirty but made of solid wood so I knew it had a great potential…

here is the table when I brought it home

high gloss, scratched, stained and bitten up:(

I could paint it over…but I knew there is beauty hiding under the gloss…
