When I first laid eyes upon this vintage table I realized
you had to see her beauty beyond the flaws.
This table had a price of 25.00 at Country Roads
and I just kept thinking I need to take you home.
Well I did but not until the following day when
Mr. Dior called to tell me the table had been marked down
to 10.00 dollars. I said " bring her home to me. "
I wanted to restore her beauty and breathe life...
I removed the layers of dust and dirt
so I could see her bare bones.
A little tender loving care was in order
and a man with some skills...
Her petite size made me
wonder how beautiful she would be
as a small farm style table...
So I placed her at the top of someone's " honey do list "
Mr. Dior removed the top of the table
while I gathered an old wood pallet I found
curbside a few weeks ago.
He began building a new support
while I chose the planks that I wanted for the new top.
We truly enjoyed working on this
together deciding how we should
restore her into a new table of beauty.
The imperfections make me love her more...
Here is the transition to the finish.
The wood pallet was perfect for this project.
I sealed the wood with Miss Mustard Seed's
furniture and antiquing wax.
I used the antiquing wax around certain areas to
make the dark spots more prominent
then sealed completely with the furniture wax.
I will share her complete makeover in an upcoming post...
I will be linking up with my favorite lovelies
this week in blogland...
