John Gordon's New Life for an Old Table

We are pleased to select John Gordon as our Project Showcase Winner! He has transformed a yard sale table into a beautiful and unique piece of furniture. The rich stain colors he selected make this table a vibrant centerpiece of his dining room. Congratulations on the job well done!

Dear Minwax,

I found an older oak table at a yard sale and used Minwax stains to create this beautiful remake. Someone's trash became our treasure!

The table top is Sangria custom-mixed Water Based Wood Stain by Minwax. The trim, base and leaf are Minwax Wood Finish Stain in Ebony. We decided to accent the outside circle of the table top with the ebony color to give it a unique contrast. We keep a shine on it with occasional Tung Oil. Added chairs from a furniture outlet store to complete our new dining room table.


Best regards,

John Gordon
