Plain and boring.
I think for my first refinish it turned out fine. I chose the color from a blog called All Things Thrifty that I was reading and the girl used this color to refinish end tables. They looked very cool. Well, hers looks way better than mine. I am not really sure why I even did this, besides that bug up my butt, because I have no place to use this and the color matches nothing in my house. Right now it is sitting in my mud room. I will say that I would like to refinish a dresser, something we actually need. If I find one cheap I'll give it a try.
