Home | Stripping Furniture | Farmhouse Harvest Table | DIY Stripping Furniture

As you may have observed on this blog, I'm constantly painting things... repainting them, stripping them, then repainting, again.  It is a problem.  However, it does come from a good place - redecorating by shopping from your own house.


I bought this table 5 years ago.  It has evolved many times... From varnished top with a white painted base, to all over black semi-gloss, to a matte black and the most recent?  Naked.  You may have noticed this bare wood trend at Restoration Hardware, and other home design stores.  I love the bare, aged, reclaimed look this table now has.  It is gone from an eye-sore to a character piece for $15 and 1 hour of work.

AFTER : Bare Wood

BEFORE : Black Semi-Gloss... ick

  1. I have a table just like this that I would like to strip as well. Can you please tell me what you used to strip the varnish and paint? Thanks!

  2. Love the bare wood look. You might want to consider Briwax to give it that antique finish...

  3. I've been looking to get a table just like this and strip it down & I can't find one. Where did you get yours?
    Thanks.

  4. You have completely changed the look of table by painting it. In fact the real art is to change the look of things by new ideas.
