Distracted

Well here is one of the projects finished ....

BEFORE: pretty beat up, many layers of stain and poly, not to mention 40 years of wax build up from furniture polish. I should mention this table came out of an old convent, my MIL scored this and lots of other loot, including the church pew in my kitchen, when the convent was closing shop. And trust me, as a product of Catholic school, nuns love furniture polish.


AFTER: a good scrubbing, lots of sanding, a can of antique white spray paint, some walnut stain, glaze, poly, and a cute little glass knob.

The table doesn't have a home yet...for now it is in  the powder room.

We have been very distracted...let's just say there could be greener pastures in our future...pastures being the key word here! We will know more on Friday afternoon...keep good thoughts for us!

Hey! That looks fantastic!!! There are lots of flea markets and antique markets here in Germany. I wish I had a better eye for it because it would really come in handy! I just found your blog from One Preppy Day. I'm hosting a blog giveaway right now if you are interested in coming over and entering! :)
