After!! It's a lot of manual labor, but technically not that bad.
I had my cousin Katy come refinish an old ugly piece of furniture for us. It turned out great!
I paid attention to what she was doing and since I had leftover paint I did this old battered end table to match. Up close you can see where I struggled with the sealer. But it's no worse off than it was. And a better color.
Meanwhile, Epic helped with chores.
