Love this table! It sold before it made it to the floor!
The base was painted red to begin with, & I just couldn't get on board with it (even though it was my idea) so I scratched red & went with my original gut color - GF Coastal Blue. Seriously, that shade cannot be beat. The top was stained with GF Antique Walnut Oil Based Stain, then given depth with GF Black Gel Stain, & the entire piece was sealed with High Performance Satin.
