Table Revival

on October 2, 2010

Once upon a time there was a table who’s time had passed. Well, Someone had donated it to Goodwill.. I saw potential in it still. Though it was boxy and modern styling..I had hope I could make it rustic.

The chocolate stain attempt on the legs got too sticky. Did something wrong.. go figure. Β The sander came out again and the legs went white again.

The left over fence boards needed a new home. The new Kreg Jig gadget needed a project (love this thing, I’ll show you more on the Kreg Jig later). Thanks

The new table surface was screwed in from the bottom. The belt sander had it’s way.

By the way, watch out with a belt sander! It almost completely ate up the drop cloth when I got too close!

Then the marine-quality-outdoor polyurethane stain went on.Stinky stinky stuff..

Table Revival!

And the table had new life, and lived happily ever after. Or until *The Fonz* decides to chew it :sigh:

    Oooh I love it Suz! And I think white legs are perfect since it goes with your other furniture πŸ™‚
    Sooooo, how is the kreg jig? On my want list but I so need to prove that I can finish my first project before I splurge on tools.

      Thanks Krista
      The Kregjig makes pocket holes.. So you can screw 2 boards together without seeing the hole.. Kinda like an invisible zipper πŸ˜‰ Perfect tool for a tabletop. I saw them making a table on HGTV this weekend and they pocket-holed the table top together too πŸ™‚
