Why can’t I find someone who will refinish my coffee table?

Two weeks ago, my sister and I were going around checking out all the yard sales in our area.

I came across an old coffee table that I considered a hideous and yet amazing piece of work.

The coffee table seemed to be an old wooden coffee table with some kind of inlay on the top. The only problem was that they had painted the entire thing an ugly shade of yellow. My sister laughed when she saw me pick it up and take it up to pay for it, but I just shrugged. All these people wanted was $0.50 for this amazing coffee table. I went through all the furniture that I saw sitting outside. I had been looking for little accent pieces for my new home, and the coffee table was perfect for my living room. I then found a set of nesting tables that drew my attention. Once again, someone had painted them the ugliest yellow that you can see, but all I could see was that they were solid wood furniture. I took the nesting tables up to the lady who was holding the yard sale. She told me that underneath the ugly is always beauty. After taking my $5 worth of treasures home, I called the antique store and asked if they had anyone who could appraise a couple of pieces for me. It didn’t surprise me when they gave me what the furniture was worth as an appraisal. What surprised me was when they told me that if I were to remove the ugly yellow paint, they would be practically worthless..
