Table Redo

I bought this table this past summer while I was in Utah.
I fell in love with it because of the two drop leaf sides
and I thought it would be a great size to use as our desk/craft/project table
The other great thing about it is it had two leaves to make it even bigger

This is what it looked like when I bought it

After being stripped and sanded

The legs getting a coat of primer

And here are all of the lovely after shots

The top was stained in dark walnut and coated with a wax

The base was painted in Creamy by Sherwin Williams
I fell in love with this table from Miss Mustard Seed and had to try it.
So it worked out perfect when I found this table.
The only thing I didn't do that Miss Mustard Seed did is rub stain over the legs after they were painted. I tend to like a cleaner look.

I have loved this table so I am sad that we may not keep it.
We have to figure out what we will have room for in Washington.

  1. Way cute! Did you use the alcohol? I need to come get a staining lesson from you before you leave...I am always so nervous about it!

  2. It looks awesome. You have amazing talent! I need to talk craft lessons from you! SAD that you might not keep it. Will you sell it? I'd buy it from you. haha

  3. that table looks beautiful! the two toned look was the perfect choice!

  4. Drop sides and leaves to extend it? Sounds like the perfect table! It looks great now! I tend to like a cleaner look, too.

  5. The table is fabulous-love what you did to it! Following from MMS-stop by for a visit!
