NO PAINTING FOR U - chippy yellow table

Sitting all alone at a church sale I couldn't resist this little table,

with it's arborite top and glossy thick paint cover up.

I started by scrapping and peeling all the white paint and dirt off.

That's when I found the original pale yellow paint underneath.

I removed the arborite and belt sanded the top smooth,

then moved to the body sanding every inch of the soft yellow paint,
before adding a stain wash.

The entire table got a coat of  walnut gel stain before it was polish back.

See how the yellow and the wood stand out now.
It's finished with wipe on poly and wax.
