I bought this kitchen table and chairs off of Craigslist
a few years ago. I wanted a "farmhouse" looking table,
and, I knew I had found one with this:
I had already started re-doing the chairs,
as you can see.. but, the table, to be honest
kind of antimidated me a bit.
It had a really thick coating of laquer on the top,
not to mention, I just detest paint stripping.. LOL
My dad stripped the chairs down for me.. whew!
I recovered each seat in a different antique sack
from Germany. My brother, who lives in Germany,
has been sending them to me for my birthdays and Christmas'!
(What an AWESOME brother I have!)
Anywho.. I finally got around to repainting my table..
Of course, only after Mr. Ruffles bought me a power sander.
That baby is AWESOME!!
I was able to totally strip down the paint and varnish
from the table in just less than an hour..
And, the after is here:
I just LOVE my "new table"!!
I still have to sand (shabby up) 2 more chairs,
but, for now, I am so happy I don't have to cover
that ugly table with a table cloth anymore!
My dining room..
One of the chairs covered with an
antique German sack.
From that.. To this!!
