This table originally had a lacquer finish. On a dining room table this type of finish tends to become scratched and scuffed more quickly than other options.
As a general rule of thumb, experience has taught us that it is better to use conversion varnish rather than lacquer on furnishings that are in the bath, kitchen or dining room. The conversion varnish finish is far more durable in these environments.
The simple advantage of the conversion varnish is that it is more durable.
This set of six dining room chairs was brought in to be stripped and refinished.
Once refinished the chairs were sent to be re-upholstered.
This table was designed by Milo Baughman. Recently refinished to original condition, but dents and scratch left in. This table is for sale at Midcenturyville in Tacoma, WA.
