Stained Espresso Desk
But initially, let us have a minor refresh of this table.
I resolved to get rid of the finish from the leading and refinish it so I wouldn’t paint more than those people pretty inlays.
This was an previous bottle of Citristrip when it truly used to function seriously properly.
I never use it anymore. They changed the components and it just does not do the career the way it utilised to.

In any case, off arrived that end to expose that lovely wooden beneath.
I considered I preferred to stain it this color… (water-based mostly stain)
NOPE! I immediately wiped that back off.
Then I thought I’d whitewash it…
Nope! Ha! I didn’t like that possibly. Off arrived that as well.
I permit it dry overnight and made a decision to go with oil-based stain alternatively.
I applied a pre-stain initially, then Antique Walnut, wiping again well, then Classic Gray about that, also wiping back again.
And WOW, it arrived out the great shade!
