Hi blog friends,
Thought I’d share with you what I’ve been working on this week.
I have this table in my kitchen.
I wanted to either replace or re-do it and since times are tough with not a lot of extra moolaa. I thought I’d just re-do it. The table itself is nice and sturdy. Well made hard wood. I have been coving this table with a vinyl table cloth for 4 yrs now and am tired of doing that. See the wood surface is worn and the stain on top is yucky. Not very prim.
So, I took it out to the patio; got my sander and paper and went to town on it! I sanded the finish off the top and scuffed the legs to show some bare wood. Then used Early American stain and went over the whole thing.
Now the top is an even color stain and looks more prim to my taste. Now I need to do something with the chairs! Maybe paint, but I don’t think Larry will let me do that. I’d like to have a few ladder backs, and found some at an auction a few weeks back that were perfect, but at auction they went for $125 each! Ouch! We have quite a few chairs in storage so I’ll have to go rummage through and see if I have some that will do. If not, I will just paint the ones in the pic while Larry’s at work! ssshhh, don’t tell him I said that.lol.
I’ve also been working on some wood things for my selling booth. I’ll try to get pics and share later.
Wishing you a great day!
