The Moon From Our Place

Refinishing Project

When we came here five years ago we bought a little used table and chairs for the boys.  It was in rough shape and the boys didn't make it any better over the years.  So after returning this time I decided to see what I could do to refinish it.  So you can see below what we did. 
Here is the "before" picture of a chair.
The boys helped me do a lot of the sanding.

And the finished product.  The boys really like the John Deere look!
