My first “really big” project

We had a round glass table in our kitchen which is not very kid-friendly. I was looking for a slightly bigger table where the kids would have more room to spread things out but also something durable. I found an oval oak table on Craig’s list and decided to stain it. Here areimageimage a few pictures. It seemed like a daunting task but I just got some ideas from Pinterest. People recommend General Finishes gel stain which I ordered from Amazon. I will post more pics later with the chairs as well. I didn’t have the energy to stain the chairs because they are farmhouse style chairs and I thought working around the spindles would just be too much.  The chairs just got spray painted white.
