Well, fun for me as I just watched. Kurt did all the work and he did a specatcular job, in my humble opinion.
I bought this table 16 years ago when I became a grown up. Grown up meaning I had a 1 bedroom apartment for the first time and it needed some actual furniture. Luckily I had a good paying job that helped me buy a sofa and a coffee table, both new. Exciting!
After 16 years of living, parties, eating many (most) dinners off it, spills, etc etc, the surface had gotten pretty funky. So I rented a sander, bought all the necessary stains and toxic chemicals and Kurt went at it.
Here it is before the makeover:

And all finished! Shiny!
Kurt is a rock star.
