Tangerine Tango

These were part of the haul I purchased last weekend. Since I sunk all of my spending money into that haul I decided that I wanted that money back and got right to work. 

Remember me telling y'all that these pieces were orange? I wasn't joking. I shared this pic on my blog FB page and Beth from Final Touches Redesign named it "Tangerine Tango". I thought that was hysterical and quite fitting!

Bye bye Tangerine Tango! I have to say this has been the best stripper I have come across. I didn't even smell it though I was outside. As far as it burning if you get it on your skin the answer would be yes but I have gotten more skilled and pretty much only had that happen once while working on these pieces. 

It took three coats with the Jasco and ALOT of hand sanding but I accomplished getting off all of the Tangerine Tango from the tops! 

I could hear them telling me thank you!;)
Next up came the staining. This is just one coat. I can't wait to apply the second coat tomorrow.

After working on them for four hours in the heat I decided to call it quits for the day.
These are the knobs that were on the tables but I am pretty sure they are not the original ones. I am on the hunt for replacement original ones. 

The original pulls should look like the top of an old skeleton key. Wish me luck! If you have seen any let me know!:)


  1. they are going to look fabulous. I can tell that already.. good luck and I cant wait to see the finished pieces.. this is gonna be a REAL transformation.

  2. The color may be horrible, but those tables are great looking, Pamela! I love the shape and the screen on the doors. I hope you can find the original knobs, but I like the backplates. I think they might look just fine once the new color is on.

  3. Can't wait for the reveal!! LOVE the doors on those pieces! I know they're going to look fabulously french!

  4. wow, the natural wood tone on the tops is so nice, can't wait to see these all finished. I hope you can find the matching knobs, have you tried online, etsy or other sites?

  5. Can't wait to see the finished product. They look so good already just in the transformation process.

  6. Pamela! Wow! Cannot wait to see them completed :)
    Tami @ Curb Alert!

  7. From the sneek peek they are going to look oh so chick. Can't wait for the big reveal.

  8. Very good work!
    I think I'll hire you to modernize three cabinets of room for me!


  9. They look great already, I can't wait to see them finished.
