Old Desk Makeover- Easy DIY Refinishing Project

Uploaded

Looking to make a stylish workspace in your home? All you need to do is refinish an old wooden table. You can find old tables in your home storage area, at yard sales, and at flee markets. Begin your project by sanding your table with a fine grit sand paper and removing the dust. Apply Minwax® Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner, according to label instructions. Next apply Minwax® PolyShades®. PolyShades® combines wood stain and polyurethane, allowing you to apply it on top of your previous coats of polyurethane finish. If your original finish is light, apply a dark finish to see a real impact on your table. A wide variety of stain colors can be pre-viewed online at minwax.com. Spread an even coat of PolyShades® in the direction of the wood grain and let dry. After a second coat, your new desk or table is ready for your home office. This will easily add a vintage or retro look to your room, while increasing functionality.
