It started out like this, orange looking stain, but with great bones. I have had this on my list of “to do’s” for ages. We bought this when we first moved to this house which makes it 6 years old…time for a change. And, the make over didn’t cost a cent!! =)
I started to sand this using the sander, but gave up in favour of muscle power. It looked so much better with out the orange looking stain that comes with mass produced things.
This is the table in place. The chairs have to be done next and I can imagine it will take me a few weeks to do them all. On the table is an old Irish Ironstone soup tureen which I picked up at Evandale Markets ages ago for $5.00. It looks great with the little roses in it. The runner is actually a bed skirt. It is white on one side and a natural linen colour on the other…and a bargain also at $4.00!!! I really love the ‘new’ table and can’t wait to do the chairs.
I would love to know what you think.
