Our New Project

There is a great secondhand furniture shop near our apartment. It is huge - especially for Japan - and you can sometimes find really great stuff. Our coffee table is from there. I repainted it as it was a disaster before. It took quite a while since the top has glass and comes off. I also painted the inside. The original color was kind of an orangy brown color.

Our next project is a desk. We (most likely I) will refinish the desk so that it matches the rest of our furniture. We found a nice solid wood desk that was pretty worn but has the potential to look great. It should take quite a while as we don't have an electric sander. I will spend an hour here and there on the balcony with some sandpaper and hopefully finish it by mid August.
