The drawers, top, and extra table surface were sanded down really well, then coffee stain was added, and several layers of polycrylic. The wood stained in a marbeling affect with the coffee stain, which I loved because it looks so rustic. The rest of the body was lightly sanded, painted a grey-green and polycrylic was added.
