    Cute and funky little table. It looks like it might be from the 40's? Nice cover up job with the paint/stain. Diana

    I'm so happy that I found you today=) I just bought an old mahogany end table for $6. It has a few scratches, but what you've done here could be an easy fix for me=))
    Thanks for sharing!

    What a cute table! I have a thing for pedestal tables, but have never seen one with a recessed top with leather like this one. Great deal too!
    If you ever come across something larger with similar needs I'd recommend either Old English Furniture Polish. It has pigment in it to cover the scratches. There's also Restore a Finish which comes in different wood colors. It's a miracle working for things in pretty bad shape.
    You're idea worked well for your table though. Great using what you have.

    I've used a product called "restore a finish" by Howard that I bought at Home Depot. It comes in a rectangular can over by the minwax… Anyway you wipe it on and well… it restores the finish. It doesn't strip or anything, it just hides surface scratches kind of polishes and rehydrates the wood. I just discovered it recently and it has worked well for me. You might want to check it out for similar projects.
