|Original table in beat-up condition|
Never judge a piece of furniture at first glance! I found this table at a second hand store and it was in bad condition on the top - lots of water damage and scratches. But I loved the classic design so I decided to re-purpose it. I created two narrow wall tables from this one old piece.
For those who want to attempt this DIY project, the steps below are what I did. For those who would rather have me do the dirty work, please call me 703-598-1036
and I will help you find and create a treasure from trash!
|Remove the center extension and gate legs and separate the ends|
- Determine desired depth of table and mark lines with a straight edge on either end of table
|With a Saws All, saw through table using a straight edge to keep a clean, straight line|
- Fill gouges with wood fill and sand out scratches
|I applied two coats of Annie Sloan Old Ochre Chalk Paint|
- Gently distress paint finish
- Apply and buff one coat of clear wax
|Anchored to wall with "L" brackets|
