Furniture project help

I like to think of myself as a fairly experienced DIYer, but this has me stumped. I got this table for free, and it was just way too yellow. So Iím in the process of sanding, and itís beautiful except for these black splotches. Almost seems like moisture penetrated it at some point. Any tips to get rid of it? I was hoping to stain a sun bleached color, but Iím thinking thatís out lol.

Combine Vinegar and Olive Oil
Apply the mixture to the water stain using a cloth. Wipe in the direction of the wood grain until the stain is gone. The vinegar will help remove the stain while the olive oil acts as a furniture polish. Finish by wiping clean with a clean, dry cloth.


Good luck! Let us know what works and how the project turns out. It is a pretty table and deserves a second life.

I'd either leave it or paint it. But I like imperfections/shabby chic, so take my opinion with a grain of salt!

You can try regular bleach and apply it with an old toothbrush or paintbrush. If regular bleach doesnít work I believe they sell wood bleach.

Zia- you know I love the shabby chic look... but now Iíve got the whole top sanded, and itís just those two spots. I had the flu pretty bad last week, and just got over the cough... but started coughing really bad so I quit. Guess Iíve got the week to think about it.

This was kinda what I was thinking about doing- but as usual, I started tearing #### apart before I decided!

I like the inspiration piece!! When I was renovating hardwood floors, I sprayed hydrogen peroxide on some spots and it bleached them out. Should work, especially if stains arenít too deep.
