Do you remember my friend Jan? I made a shutter cupboard, shutter shelf, repurposed door shelf, and a headboard bench for her. I also recovered a rocking chair and made a couple of teacup lamps for Jan. She curb shops quite a bit, and is always finding really good stuff.
Jan curbed this table, and decided to pass it on to me, Thank You Jan!
The top had a couple of issues.
I decided to remove the finish, and I find it easiest to sand rather than strip.
I used my Dremel MultiMax to sand the finish off the edges, LOVE it!
After sanding the top, I removed it from the base so it would be easier to paint.
I primered and painted it with my HomeRight Finish Max Fine Finish Sprayer . That sprayer makes projects go so much faster!
I used my new favorite stain, Minwax Jacobean. After a couple of coats of stain, and a few coats of wipe-on poly—I have a nice new table:
Oh, yeah, I glazed it on my marathon glazing day when I did the sewing cabinets (triplets).
The top is still not perfect, but it looks a lot better don’t you think?
I just can’t stop combining the white(ish) and stained top. The first piece I did that on two years ago was my thrifted coffee table.
Curb finds are fun! Have you curbed anything lately?
ps Jamie and Andy arrived yesterday!
