Knowing When to Quit: Not All Projects Are a Success

See the differences in color? Yikes!

See the differences in color? Yikes!

So I found this table on the “free” section of Craigslist. It was kept outside, and it was not an outside table. Warped, moldy, and black, I had my work cut out for me.
I scrubbed and scrubbed, bleached the top, sanded it down, and got to staining.
To tell you the truth, I was putting off the staining part. The wood was in awful shape, and even after the bleaching and sanding, the colors were uneven. Having not used stain before (hey, I’m a color girl!) I wasn’t sure if it would hide the differences in color. Well, it didn’t.
I am going to attempt another coat or two, but may end up scrapping this project. Sometimes, you just need to know when to quit.
