We've all had it...the "uh-oh, why did I buy that" moment. I actually bought this century old table for the top only. Of course, I thought I could find the perfect legs to replace the lopsided cut-off ones it had, but I had no idea how expensive the chunky oak ones can cost. So, there it sat in the garage for a couple of months just holding boxes.
While I was hunting for items to take to the upcoming shows, I took another long hard look at it. I knew that it could be turned into something....plus I REALLY needed to get it out of the garage.
Thanks to my wonderful and talented husband, he was able to cut the legs down level and to a coffee table height. How perfect?
I sanded and stained the top, then finished with poly for durability. The base was painted in milk paint and distressed to show the gorgeous detail that I fell in love with. I still need to wax the apron and legs, but wanted to take pictures in the sun before I brought it in. The wax will bring it out even more.
See those beautiful pressed designs?
This table would be perfect in a coastal, shabby, French or farmhouse chic room. It is so rustic and cute!
Love those legs!
If the new owner wants to convert it back into a dining table, it can be easily done with the right legs. However, I think this makes the perfect family room entertainment zone!
This will also be available at The Vintage Home Market next weekend!
