Kitchen Table Re-do

Refinishing our kitchen table is one project that has been on my ‘to-do’ list for quite some time now… like over a year.

I am usually anxious to start and finish furniture remodeling/decorating projects – with this case, though, I was so indecisive with what I wanted to do with the table.

There wasn’t much pressure of ‘messing’ anything up since the furniture piece in question was as pedestal table from the thrift store (It cost me less than $20, but I can’t remember the exact number since it was so long ago!!).  Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of the table before I started priming and staining (they are still housed on my Dell, and this post is being typed on our new Mac).


Here is the table after priming the bottom and staining the top.  At this point, I still didn’t know what I was going to do with the bottom.

Then I came across this color. Already mixed and standing proudly on the oops-paint shelf at Walmart. And it was perfect. Have I told you before that I love green?

The best part was the price…$3.88!

Even after the first coat of the green I knew it was going to be perfect.

After the coats of paint and stain dried I made sure to cover the top with clear polyurethane and I used a can of clear topcoat spray paint that I had in the garage for the bottom.

This morning my sister and I went to the local farmer’s market to grab some goodies. In addition to some great veggies and an awesome gray pumpkin (the name of which escapes me at the moment), I came home with these beauties.

Now all I need to do is re-finish the chairs!
