So after stripping and cleaning it is time to sand then pick out the color stain you think. We did a shout out of facebook and we think the piece we have is a hard maple wood but it is just gorgeous once we stained it! And used spar varnish in a satin to protect it and add that shine!
So now the bottom is done... time to attack the back piece :)
I cross stitch... still on the pale yellow color
