restoring an old table...1:53 PM
So I did not take a before picture of this table. But trust me when I say it was ugly. My mom bought it for me from a local antique store for Christmas to put in our sun room, which we want to make into a breakfast nook. This table had about 3 layers of pealing white paint on it.
So I put a lot of time, sweat and pure muscle (ha!, like I have any) and sanded off most of the paint (there was some on the legs that would not come off). I then gave the top a wood stain finish of English Maple and painted the bottom.
I then added two coats of Shellac to the wood and a layer of Lacquer to the legs (so i can clean it easily with little kids). Henry enjoys it so far. :)
