Hope you all had a great weekend! I was struggling with some sinus issues – too much sanding on Thursday-so I was not as productive as I would have liked. I could paint but when I hit the sanding step – no way!
Odds are in your favor that you will find a gate leg table at an antique mall. I usually do not pick them up, but my picker (brother-in-law) grabbed one for me at auction.
I attempted to sell it in its original condition. No luck.
You would think I would learn that I seldom sell anything in its original state.
Out came the Emperor’s Red paint and some waxes.
Besides just a good cleaning, the top required some love.
Hubby busted out the sander and stripper. (I left the garage at this point!)
Isn’t that beautiful? I love the grain.
Two coats of a special finish for tables and she is done.
This versatile table will be in the store by Tuesday.
Have a great start to the week!
