How to Easily Refinish a Wood Tabletop

How to Easily Refinish a Wood Tabletop

Our oak kitchen table was really starting to show some major wear and tear after 30 years of daily use, so I thought I would try refinishing it. I used a dark stain to give it a modern look and only did the top. I love the way it turned out and wished I’d tried this years ago.


We’ve had this oak table and chair set many years. It’s extremely sturdy, and still very functional, but there are two problems. One is that I no longer love the golden oak look, and two, the top of the table is in rough shape. So I thought, how hard would it be to refinish a wood tabletop? It turns out, not hard at all.
