If you have furniture that has old paint, or a stain you just don't like, why not give your piece new life? Mid-century modern furniture is really hot right now. This one was painted yellow. I stripped the paint and found a gorgeous birdseye maple hiding! Sadly, there was water damage and I knew I had to stain it darker. My friends at Sherwin Williams made a custom stain (Sort of a charcoal grey) for the top and a black for the skirt and legs. I think it turned out beautifully!
