I made quick work of this set. I snagged it on Saturday at the town wide tag sale, and I'm already done with it. I sanded all the tables down, which was wicked tedious on all those turned legs. I then painted the table bases in my new favorite shade, toasted sesame seed. After the paint I lightly distressed the legs, to make all the fantastic turnings pop, and then waxed it. The tops are pine, stained and sealed.
Before and afters below!
