This is an example of the sort of finish we can produce, and how second hand pieces of furniture and room accessories can be easily refreshed to suit contemporary tastes and decor.
When my Grandma died many years ago, I inherited a few pieces of furniture one of which was this nest of tables. Originally there were three tables, but one got lost in a previous house move. The veneer was a bit battered and water marked, so I gave them a good sanding down before re-varnishing with Ronseal Clear SatinVarnish.
I took the base framework off in order to paint and wax it more easily, and to produce a neater edge between painted and wood varnished surfaces. The paint was Farrow & Ball Purbeck Stone No 275 and I finished it with Liberon Neutral Wax Polish Black Bison.
