My what a crazy day it has been! I have a few deadlines I am racing to meet which means more time in the garage. Not that I am complaining, my garage is my sanctuary somedays, but it is always a little rough to work and be a mommy all at the same time. My baby is almost 1, I can't believe he is getting so big so fast. But he is at that age where he is into everything so containing him can be a job all of its own. But we succeeded today all of my children are tucked safely in bed and....I finished this table and my what a beauty it turned out to be.
Here is a look at the before. It is a beautiful solid wood Ethan Allen table, it just needed a facelift.
Now it is so light an cheery!
Since this table is solid wood it made sanding the top down possible and I am so glad. It has such beautiful grains and I love the wood top. I stained the top with Miniwaxes Early American and top coated it with a Spar Urathane.
The table base and chairs are painted with a custom mixed cream latex paint. I then sanded and glazed them to bring out all the details on the spindles.
I have to admit, I kind of really hated these chairs when they showed up, and I hated them while I was sanding them, because sanding chairs is a very long process, but I can now say I am a lover of these chairs. They just needed a little help showing off all of their curves!
I think am going to call it a day, off to my bed I go!!
