Have you missed me? I have missed you! I thought that after I got this table I would amaze you at my first attempt to really refinish a piece of furniture. I just didn't think that it would take this long!
First of all I must tell you that Jim and I went out garage sale hunting 2 weeks ago around closing time.and found the table above and it was half price. The original price was $2.50. We picked up this treasure for $1.25! It is very heavy and I don't think they wanted to drag it back into their house.
As you can see, it is very heavily scratched and has a heavy varnish on it. So I started right away to sand the top, a LOT! Jim found that it would be easier to just take the table apart so that I could get to the bottom shelf easier. So far, I have painted the bottom shelf, "Old Ocher" by Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Because I had some left over from my last project.
Here is another view of the top.
Today, I will complete the legs and then get to distressing and finishing it up. In the meantime here are some photos of the seasonal changes:
Did I disappoint you by showing you just "before" pictures of my coffee table? I am sorry.
Please come back later and I promise, it will be worth it. At least I hope so. :o)
May the peace and love of Jesus be with you all today!
