Preparing the Feet

As the feet of the table had been obviously neglected they were incredibly dirty and the true colour underneath could not be seen. After rubbing down with a cloth I found only some of the colour was beginning to shine through, speeding up the process I moved on from the cloth and chose to rub down the rest of the foot using iron wool. This brought out the true colour and shine which had been hidden beneath the build up of grime and dirt.

Each foot took around 45minutes to fully clean and once finished I used small golden screws and screwed them back onto the foot of the table.
