We’re big fans of Room & Board’s furniture.  Not only is Room & Board based out of the Twin Cities (just like us), but all of their furniture is crafted in the USA (just like ours!).  Their furniture is well-built and the designs are classic, so they will stand the test of time.

But even the best furniture needs a facelift every once in a while, and that’s exactly what we did with this Portica Coffee Table with Solid Cherry Wood Top.  The previous owners had a few kids and the top had the normal wear and tear you’d expect to come with that – minor scratches and general surface wear.  So here’s what we did with this beautiful piece to bring it back to life:

It took a while, but we finally got down to the bare wood…  Then we took a break to sharpen PJ’s hockey skates and somehow those got in the picture…

Then we applied an oil-based polyurethane and reattached the top to the base.  It turned out amazing, and someone is going to enjoy this amazing coffee table for years to come!
