Hot work in the garden!

My husband and I spent the day trying to finish revamping our coffee table. We bought it second hand last year and we loved it except for one small detail: it was a bit orange. After spending three days this week sanding it (with a belt sander – yay power tools!) we finally waxed it today, and guess what. It hardly looks any different! It seems that the wood itself has a very orangey tone and all we’ve managed to do is mess up the finish!

Well, that’s my quota of DIY for the rest of this year then! I can sit back and look at my uneven orange table and know that I am doing exactly the right thing by sticking to my crochet.
