A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: This big ole' table got refabbed

This big ole' table got refabbed

I got this table this past fall.

Actually, I got the chairs first.

Not the greatest looking chairs! But,  I painted them white and reupholstered them in my favorite flower fabric. (This has nothing to do with anything, but the fabric reminded me of someone - so, Thank You Traci fro the fantastic "Happy", I LOVED getting it!)

The chairs were bright and cheerful and yummy fun.

I love the distressing.

After talking to my Sister-in-Laws they thought I should just do the table with it too. So I went back to GW and picked it up. It's huge with the two leaves.

You may or may not remember that I painted it white. It was gorgeous! But it sat. In my garage. Forever. I put it on CL, I had it on FB, on White Butterfly, I even did a flyer and posted it at Bruegger's. Not a single bite.

Look at how beautiful the sides are!

So, last week I started to strip the top in the cold. And I sanded it with my belt sander, in the cold - dear Lord there was a lot of stuff on it. And it was cold. I sanded and wiped and cleaned and restained with some ebony stain. In the cold. Then I brought it in and put some poly on it. I know others like to use lacquer and such, but I like the softness (in the look) of polycrylic. So that's what I use. 4 -5 layers thick.

And here it is now:

Such a HUGE difference. HUGE.

I love the way this looks more than anything. Not more than my hubby or my kids, or my family, but, more than the way a salted caramel hot chocolate feels in my belly.

It just makes the table. Totally.

Love. Now it needs to get out of my kitchen. If you want it, go over here.

It's GREAT! The ebony stain really makes it POP! Hopefully you will be saying goodbye to that set real soon.
