Such Beautiful Detail in this end table from the 1960s. The top had a few marks and stains. I could see that the top was solid wood with beautiful detail underneath a layer of varnish. So I decided to apply a thick coat of a natural varnish remover and let it sit for overnight. The next morning, I carefully cleaned off the top by gently scraping and cleaning it. It came out really beautiful. I will probably just go over the top with a flat poly to protect it. I am so glad I did not paint over this beautiful detail. Did I mention? ~ The table was a free rescue project!
