The affects of Loss- Refinished End table

There are things, people and events that can affect us deeply. We suffer, We Lose, We BURN; but somehow we have to survive. We change something about us and we put on this outer coat to hide the scars underneath. To some they see the beauty in the coat and to others they can see through the opening and can tell that the coat is just a place to hide. They ask us to remove the coat but we rather suffer being hot than reveal the scars. However there are parts and details of us that will never change. No matter what traumatic event, no matter the loss we experience, family will always be apart of you. They may never get a full glimpse off what you hide inside, they will always be there to protect you even when you cant ask for help.

I got this end table off LETGO for free and I burned the wood and painted with white paint and gave parts a red mahogany finish for detail.
