We have light wood furnishings so we only used clear varnish instead of a stain and it turned out beautiful. We eat dinner on th
e sofa while watching TV so wanted a higher surface while eating. This table is perfect for that. However, the lift mechanism does not work well enough when we apply pressure on the table, i.e. cutting our food. We are now trying to devise a way to keep the table in the high position, such as a wood block to temporarily put underneath the tabletop. If it had worked properly we would have given it a 5-star rating!
