RE: Furniture Refinishing

It actually looks pretty damn good. How did you sand it? Do they have sanders as big as a vacuum? It's not too red. I abhor cherry in that dark red/brown. I have one piece of cherry furniture in my house that has got to go. It's the tv stand/entertainment center in my living room. I think I bought it at CostCo cheap/quick.

Anyway, have you done anything more than potty training in the last 5 years or so? Or is eating your hobby. You could use that...enter a hot dog eating contest or something. I don't think Clang would have a chance.

Yes and there are videos on youtube as well. You can watch a couple and get an idea of what is involved.

RE: Furniture Refinishing

Yes I rented a sander similar looking to what Duchess posted, you bony twat. When I pulled up the carpet the hardwood was covered in paint and that sander blasted it away to a smooth finish. I did something wrong though because the stain didn't come out even, in some places it's way darker than others.

Eating is most definitely not my hobby. The thought of food sometimes disgusts me because I'm so nauseated from the beer. I'd say I take in about 1300 calories of beer per day and maybe 4 or 500 calories of food. Now that I'm older my body is just holding on to all those extra beer calories and I'm taking in very little nutrients from the little food that I do eat. I really need to change my ways. Like I won't be around for long if I don't.

This is my diet: 4 cups of black coffee in the morning, 3 or 4 bottles of water early afternoon, start drinking beer around 1pm which lasts until I go to bed and eat a yogurt or something and a couple of bites of whatever I cooked for dinner.

Yeah same here. The only changes I've made to my diet is I cut out snacking in between meals and I rarely eat dessert. Impressive beer intake. You could probably drink me under the table.

RE: Furniture Refinishing

Well like all alcoholics I've built up a tolerance to it over the years. Sometimes I don't even know why I'm drinking it because I'm not even catching a buzz. When I do stop drinking I start to crave sugar which is something I don't normally like. The last time I quit drinking for two weeks I went through a giant sized bag of Jolly Ranchers.

I don't give a damn how you people do it up north, but we don't eat lizards down here.

But if we did they would be gutted, breaded and deep fried.

RE: Furniture Refinishing

I finally finished that son of a bitch. It looks really good if I do say so myself but damn....it took a lot of time. If I ever wanted to touch up the finish or fix the finish on a leg or something, I'm fucked. I ended up mixing colors to get a dark brown that I could live with. I could never replicate it.

I'll post some pics later. It's drying now but I can't wait to get it out of my garage so I can clean up in there. It's been all about NOT moving shit around because of dust etc. The garage is a hot mess (more than usual).

RE: Furniture Refinishing

I know all of you were waiting with bated breath to see the outcome of my table refinishing effort so here you go. Duchess, you were right about the raised corner(s). I hadn't really noticed them, and/or they weren't a priority at the time but in the end loosening the screws that held the middle portion in combined with a rubber mallet made it flush enough for me. This is our living room (which was "remodeled" in that we changed the floor, bought new couches, changed out some other furniture etc).

I ended up staining and lacquering the whole thing.

As to what's on the couch behind it (somebody's going to notice), probably clean laundry. That's a laundry way station. When I'm lazy, I put laundry there on its way upstairs to be put away. Smiley_emoticons_slash

Thanks.

I made some minor mistakes that required me removing/resanding a leg here or there but I'm happy with it. It's a shame that there's absolutely no market for flipping furniture. I wouldn't mind having a project going most of the time but I stupidly bought a lot of our new furniture and, except for the couches, most of it's cheap but it looks good.

The only project in my future is changing the color of the legs on our kitchen table. They're too white. I just need to soften them up a shade or two.
