New again!!!





I wrote a post in Jan. about getting a new table for xmas.I absolutely love my table.Well,in our house it is hard keeping things looking new for long!!!! The table got some scratches ,which is ok but then disaster happened.My husband took off a plug in from the outlet and left it on the table. The scented oil leaked and ate away part of the finish.I was so upset because it was a present and I was having a bad day.I basically whined about it for a while and then the kids gave different ideas to fix it.My boys said I should paint it.I was thinking I would refinish it, but I ended up painting it black and adding 4 layers of shellac to protect it.Here are some pictures of the ordeal and the finished table.

The first step towards successful Home Improvement Remodeling is to find out how much your home is presently worth. The next thing you need to know is what is the top sales price in your area - for totally updated and refurbished homes - of the same approximate size as your home. The difference between the present value of your home and the ceiling price of 'like' homes in your area is your maximum home improvement remodeling budget for all and any works you plan to do around your home. http://contractor-remodeling-home-repair.blogspot.com.
