Hello everyone! Over the last week or so, Hubby has been very busy refinishing our dining room table. We bought this table and five chairs at a thrift store about three years ago. This is what it looked like when we brought it home.
Not very interesting, right?
We sanded it and stained it a blue/gray colour. But, frequent use took it’s toll and it started to look, well, patchy
So we gave it an upgrade.
First of all, Hubby sanded it
Then the first coat of stain was wiped on with a cloth
We spent an afternoon contemplating whether we wanted it that colour, or whether it needed another coat. We went with the darker coat.
Once it was dry, Hubby varnished it to seal in the colour. It spent a couple more days in the garage drying and the little bumps were sanded out. The bottom half of the the table also got a fresh coat of white paint.
And … done!
Beautiful, yes? I LOVE it!! And the best part – total cost about $50.
Next, we’ll be revamping our patio furniture which currently looks like this
Very sad. Check our FaceBook page for updates on this post on how we transformed this furniture. You won’t believe how different it looks. But, we’re not finished it yet!
See you soon!
