I need some input from you guys. I recently purchased a piece from Craigslist. I anticipated refinishing it, but when I got it, it was in pretty good shape. I cleaned it up with Old English and that worked on most of the scratches. Unfortunately, it did not help the scratches on the top – the most visible.
The piece has a heavy finish, so sanding and trying to match the finish on the piece will not work. So…
Do I sand the top and stain it a darker color (black?)
Do I paint the whole piece?
Do I put a runner on it and call it a day?
To help you understand my dilemma better, here are a few pics:
If you have been to my home, this piece replaced the black table in the entry way.
Now in place (for the time being).
Apparently, the mirror needs to be cleaned better!
So tell me what to do! I am stuck.
Thanks for your comments and help!
