Our table was actually given to us by one of my best friends. Her mom had gotten it from a friend who was getting rid of it. It didn't match the style of her house so they put it in their backyard and used it as a place to paint their baseboards. I never got a before picture, this was years before I even knew what a blog was. Here it is in the process of getting fixed.
I was about 75% done and I gave up. I was beat. My hands were destroyed and the little help I had gotten had waned. So my in-laws lovingly found us a little old man that would be able to finish it for us. It was actually our first Christmas present as a married couple. We are/were so grateful.
Six to seven years ago when we started decorating our house, I wanted everything espresso/mocha color. So we did just that, to this beautiful danish mid century table. I've loved it for all these years, but my style has changed. I would love it back in it's original glory. I've mentioned it to my husband, but I'm not sure if he will go for it. What would you do? It is in perfect condition and it's not that I don't love the color, I just feel it takes away from the style of the table.
