Hey guys!! Our cousin is getting married next month and he recently asked for my help with a table revamp. His fiance that we love found this table on Craig’s List for $100.
Please excuse my garage… It’s a bit shanty! This was a great table. It’s solid oak and has great traditional lines… It was just in need of a little updating! It also came with a leaf.
I opened the table up and set the leaf inside leaving a bit of space on each side. I used Behr black satin interior paint. I never pick a color card. Just tell the paint guy or gal that you want black. I cleaned the top off just a bit and painted the entire piece. Here it is drying.
I then used my 3M block sander with 80 grit paper to sand my edges a bit. I LOVE the results!
My cousin added the topcoat of Polyurethane by himself when he got it home. I am hoping they will soon share a picture of it in the house but for now these will have to do! For less than $25 I took this old orange looking table and turned it into something fabulous! We are constantly getting questions about revamping kitchen tables and I hope this inspires you guys to go for it! It is so worth it!!
And there’s my satisfied customer!!
