Spring is here.
At least it is on the calendar.
Outside, not so much.
So what's a girl to do?
Paint of course!
Last week I went to an estate sale and picked up a few really nice pieces.
You can see the buffet HERE and my plans for it.
But I also picked up this set of mid century end tables. SOLID WOOD....oh yum :)
Aren't they cute cute?
Most that I've seen with drawers look like they have two, but only have one...this one actually has two drawers :)
How cool is that?
And do you see the brass feet on them? They are MASSIVE. Well massive for an end table that is.
I took them into my workshop and tried...TRIED stripping them down. What a pain. Whatever this company used to seal it couldn't be touched with my stripper. Seriously people this stuff was hard as a rock!
I gave up.
I tried several different techniques and just wasn't happy with the results.
I loved the colour I chose, but I hated the top. :(
So I grabbed my sander and went to work. Man was it hard!
Here they are!
The knobs were cleaned and scrubbed to within an inch of their lives.
And they match the feet.
Solid baby! and Beautiful!
A bit of distressing and it's perfect!
Sigh....finally happy with the results.
Now to grab another coffee and get on with my day :) hmmmm bedroom set in white. Yup. Think I better get to work on that :)
Happy First day of spring!
Great job on the tops! I have not had any luck with stripper so I always sand. But I can't always get off the previous finish that way either.ReplyDelete
I get my stripper in the states...the stuff in Canada sucks! lolDelete
I'm loving the gray and wood combo... I'm going to have to find a piece to try that on. I'm featuring your table in the PoPP Spotlight this week. Thanks for linking up.ReplyDelete
