I have so many projects over the last few months to tell you about. I am going to start with my favorite though. We use to have round wrought iron table, glass top table in our kitchen. It was not doing the job! I had grand plans of homework stations, everyone piled around the table. This could definitely not be done at our small table, not to mention that round table are so hard because they had to sit in the center of your room, taking up space.
Insert those great Facebook Yard Sale sites. I found the perfect sized table for $100. It came with two chairs and a bench. Gasp! I LOVE benches!! The only problem was, it did not fit my taste at all in the looks department! It is a light oak all wood table
USUALLY I WOULD INSERT BEFORE PIC HERE: I am so sad I do not have one! In my excitement to do this, I completely forgot rule #1. LOTS OF PICTURES!
I added a light mahogany stain over the top my husband had sanded. It turned out exactly as I wanted it!
I then finished the top with a light poly spray.
The Hubs had never done anything with the chairs, bench or table legs. I didn't have the want to sand them..GASP I know! I bought about 10 cans of white spray paints and applies about 3-4 coats of spray to these. They looks great! I am sure I will have to touch up these probably once yearly, but I am okay with this as they look great!
