I found this treasure at Savers for $15. Then I founds some pillows as well from Savers for about $7 which I covered with fabric for about $10. This was my first sanding project. I took off the paint by sanding, but next time I think I will use some paint removers. I think it’s safer cause you don’t have questionable paint particles floating around or getting on your skin. I decided to use an Espresso color for the stain and sealed it with polyurethane. I thought the color was a bit dark at first and was thinking of wiping it down with mineral spirits, but the color grew on me and I sealed it.
