Patio Table

While the two previous decor posts involved buying new things, this post shows you can transform something you already own into something beautiful.  Our patio table was faded and dull from sitting in the sun day in and day out.  I simply sanded it with fine grit sandpaper, cleaned it with a mixture of dishwashing detergent and water, and applied 2 coats of polyurethane, allowing each coat to dry overnight.  What a change!

When sanding, be sure to wear a mask
I used a scrub brush to remove all dust
We moved the table to the garage before applying the polyurethane so it wouldn't pick up dust
