    I might have a convert on my hands

    My daughter is planning to move out soon and has been hitting the thrift stores for furniture. She found this old coffee table, which was painted completely black. I could see the diamond pattern of some wood grain through the top and suggested she try stripping it as the paint job was pretty bad. I fully expected her to repaint it, but sounds like she may just be sanding it down and doing a clear coat. There is one little area of bubbling that needs some attention due to water damage (particle board underneath), but I think we can work it out.

    That table looks like it has lots of potential.

    Careful. That paint stripper is killing the grass.

    I was hoping it would make the rocks grow in that part of the yard.

    Looks like the grass had it coming.
