Recently my husband and I finally finished refinishing our tall table. Oh, man, working in heat and humidity is the worst. But, after a few set backs, we finally finished.

- Sand the top off. Find areas that had been worn down that needed extra sanding (because of natural oils).
-Then more sanding.
-Lots of sanding basically. Tired but strong hands afterwards.
-Sand again because the humidity ruined the first staining.
-stain more carefully again.
-put on top lacquer. Sand again because of drips. Re-lacquer
-let dry. finally DONE
-sanding and staining in high humidity STICKS!
-spray painting would have been easier, but the stain is the look we wanted....
-If you want something to look nice, tons of hard work is required. End of story.
