Liz, a ReStore customer, kindly shared her DIY story with us.

Liz bought a table at the ReStore and she gave it a new life.

Below is her description of the process:

Here’s my ReStore story.

I saw this table sitting there and fell in love!

I had to drive up from Laramie another day to pick it up.

I chose a Monday (the ReStore is closed on Monday) thank

goodness a store employee was there and kind enough to get

me my table on his day off!

After I got home it didn’t take me long to get started.

I sanded it down and brought out its natural beauty.

Distressed it a little more.

Added some stain and more sanding.

Two different coats of that.

 I then covered it with 5 coats of wax. Buffed to a shine.

Got lucky and found matching chairs,

and now I have the most unique, beautiful kitchen table!
