In this video, I am upcycling a nest of tables that I purchased from Facebook Marketplace for only $15.00. The tables had quite a few stains on the surface and normally, I would clean, sand and prime the wood. However, as I planned to use aluminium foil under the resin, there was no need to.
So it is as simple as removing the legs, applying the foil, letting it dry before applying the resin. To finish the piece off, the sides were painted in black.
