Refinishing a table need advice :}
I am looking for some advice. My dining room table is too small so I decided I need a new one. But I'm cheap, I like to turn something I can get off Craigslist into something I will adore. See I love a farmhouse table, just hate the price that goes with it, soooo onto Craigslist I venture.
I found a table I am very interested in and in fact I'm buying it this weekend, $60 yes please and thank you. I just hate the finish on it. I want to change the stain to suit me. It looks like a typical Rooms To Go table, but I want to make it look more farmhouse.
I also purchased beautiful windsor chairs off of Craiglist for a steal so I plan to pull together a farmhouse look.
My question is, what do I have to do to this table top to get it to the color I want? Here is are the pics of the table and what I am trying to achieve:

Help me! I'm thinking a good sanding, stain, satin poly. Correct?
