As for the tutorial I'll give it quickly, but if you want a full detailed one just ask in the comment bar and leave your email and I will give you the full rundown!
We completely sanded the top of each surface, chairs bench and table top. Then we used a walnut stain. We didn't even sand the legs we just painted them this pretty turquoise color. Then we sanded the legs down past the black underneath paint and added the same walnut stain. Then put a glaze on the blue and a polyurithane coat on the stain!
