I bought this piece at Goodwill months ago.Â It is a nice piece, minus the glass rings on the top.Â We use it as side table in our living room, and I just try to cover the top with “stuff.”Â I have been putting off dealing with it, because of time, but this morning I decided to tackle it.Â I still didn’t have a ton of time to devout to refinishing, so I thought I would try something I had read about a while back.
Â It is SO easy, but really effective!Â All you need is an iron and an old t-shirt.
Set the iron on the steam setting, place an old t-shirt down on the damaged area and steam.Â I didn’t leave it in one place long; I just had to keep checking and re-ironing.
It worked like a charm!Â There was one ring that was really bad,Â it lightened but didn’t completely go away.
The wood was also really dull, and needed something to brighten it up.Â I had some left-over floor cleaner for my wood floors that I thought I would try…it couldn’t hurt!Â It had big claim on the bottle!
It looks SO much better and now I don’t have to keep hiding the top.Â A great fix for about 10 minutes of my time.Â
Why didn’t I try this sooner!?!
