Making a Table
You may be wondering what I was thinking when bought this table… well it had 2 things going for it…
1-it had great legs
2-it was cheap
I’m not really the kind of DIY’er that buys junky furniture in order to create something new… I WISH I had that skill set, but alas I do not and I truly envy people who do… So this makeover will not be a big “WOW! What a change” but it may spark an idea for you… think about it, I got a great table base for less than half the cost of a 1 new table leg!
The top of the table is Formica and looked out of place on the base, I knew I wanted something else…
Oh so much better after!
My Super Awesome Hubby attached three pine planks together with the biscuit joiner and then routered the edges of the top. I spray primed the legs and then painted them with some leftover custom mix Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I sanded down the top (220 grit paper) and stained it with dark walnut stain.
I just think the square pine plank top looks so much better than the round top on this table. I waxed the top with Annie Sloan Dark Wax, then clear wax, buffed and shined it up!
I lightly distressed the base and sealed the paint with a coat of Annie Sloan Clear Wax.
I’m taking this table to Lucketts… I think it will look so cute with my owl print chairs! This table would make a great game table or it’s just the perfect size for a small kitchen.
Thanks as always for stopping by!
