OMG...that mermaid is a knock-out!!! You are indeed lucky to have your own personal shopper.

Took the rattan bar to my brother-in-law woodworker to match the stain. He's got everything. Although the original pics look lighter it's the same color stain, a red mahogany. After it dries we'll use his setup to spray it with a lot of varnish (per his suggestion, having the equipment). I'll use a combination of high gloss for the top and maybe satin for the sides. Not sure yet. I left plenty of glitches to keep the vintage worn look without looking completely worn out.

So happy to have saved this from the dumpster.

Do you know you can upload your pictures directly to Tiki Central because all I'm seeing is picture of a frog in an ice cube?

Sorry, Tony, no I didn't know that. Much easier than linking to another site!

This is as I found it - after cleaning off white spray paint.







This is from today after prep and staining.









I'm gonna like varnishing it

Well, the shots aren't great but there are now 6 to 8 layers of varnish in various places. Had to see how many goodies it can stock - quite a lot.

Yes. It's a little too rattan for a Witco knock off so I'll probably find something tiki for the front and sides.

Nice score on the re-bar!

Nice flooring too.

Don't waste time and money with base boards in the room upstairs.

They'll all be covered floor to ceiling.
