My Summer Project

This is a coffee table that has been in my family since I was a little baby! I remember crawling on it when I was a child!
It was in really bad condition, mom was going to throw it out, all of the legs were broken, and it need a new finish.
I couldn't stand to see it go so I took it on as a project.
I wish I would have taken before and after pictures.
It started missing all its legs, which I put back on and then resanded the whole thing and gave it a coat of dark paint. I wanted the beautiful carved work to stand out so I buffed it and then gave it a good wood polish.
I love the end result and it is in my living room.
Mom I am keeping your plant alive!
The dollies are my great-great grandma York's. My grandma Beth gave them to me as a wedding gift and I am glad to get a place to display them. They are so beautiful!
