Its done. Thank God! I am very happy with it. Its not perfect but I'm not a professional & it was the biggest thing I've ever done. I did my best.
So you've seen the before.
Here's a bit of the during. And the after. Unfortunately the before picture doesn't really capture the details of how gross this piece was. Trust me when I say its better now. Even if you don't care for the dark finish, at least you can tell its wood.
AND, I got my FFF fabric yesterday. Yesterday was a good day.
I've also decided that I am frogging my ripples.
