Wow ~ 2 posts in one day! I am catching up on some old projects. This piece is gone, to our favorite & most wonderful babysitter of all time! She also got 4 chairs to go with it. They'll be going back to Athens with her in the fall for her apartment at UGA. yay!!
This gorgeous table came from the 'goodwill that redeemed itself'. I snatched it up quickly!
The top was in bad shape, but it is solid oak and otherwise in great condition.
First things first, I sanded down the top to the bare wood.
I flipped it & painted the underside. First with primer, then with an old white.
Looking better already!
Next, I stained the top dark walnut. I used a wood conditioner first, because the wood seemed awfully dry. It only needed one coat of stain.
Drying in the garage, a gazillion coats of poly later.
thanks for stopping by! have a GREAT weekend!
