refinishing shelf - first time
Got this shelf couple years ago for FREE so I thought I will use it as my first project to try my skills at refinishing. Obviously had to strip the paint - layers of red, pink and white. Two years later, I still had to deal with wood stain. I gave it my best and alas, the wood under it is not anything spectacular, no grain to look at all. I primed it and will paint it. But I learned various techniques and most important - that I don't like detail work, those hangers are a pain to work with, and I will always have appreciation of good fine woodwork.
