    Yes, I want to know how.  And here is a crazy question.  Why do you wax something after it is painted?  See I told you it was a crazy question.  The table and chairs are BEAUTIFUL.

    That turned out so nicely!  The chunky lines in the “before” were deceiving to how the “after” looks.  You did a wonderful job.
