A few months ago I got crazy and stripped my dining room table. I bought my table, end tables, coffee tables and entertainment stand over 8 years ago, when we moved into the barnhouse, at a furniture outlet. It was a big step up for me considering that I had a post- it pad under my last table to keep it steady. It is a big farmhouse table and I liked the style but was getting sick of the "orangeish" finish.
|Sorry bout the sunlight thru the blinds. Please nobody tell my photographer friend.|
|Now some of you may wonder (cough ,my father-in-law, cough) why would anyone strip a perfectly good table.|
UMMM cause I like it.
|Now doesn't this look like the perfect table for a plowboy and his herd?|
P.S. No one was harmed in the resoration of this table!
Addendum: My father-in-law has seen the dining room table. Do you know what he said? "Is this a different finish?" Yep, that's it. Here is another lesson from this table project. 5. Don't make assumptions. Shame on me. WOW. This table just keeps on giving.
