Since the weather is so nice today, I decided to stop procrastinating and sand down our dining room table. We got the table before we moved into this apartment at a second hand shop. Although it was not that expensive it looked pretty good. The table top had once been painted with something clear, and this paint had been slivering off. So the previous owners (and we did the same thing) waxed the top to keep it water proof. Although it was not ugly, it lacked the shine it deserved.
