Here is a picture of what our dining room recently looked like:
Our dining table was so bad that I had to start covering it with a table cloth to make it look half way decent.
So, when my friend moved into her new house and the previous owners had left a table there, I told her that I wanted it (thank you Rebecca) since she was just going to get rid of it.
Here it was at the beginning.
So, I started by putting the leaf in and stripping and sanding the entire top.
Here is how it turned out...
I still plan on painting my chairs an off white to match the bottom of the table. I am super excited. I love how it turned out. I can't wait to see how it looks all put together with the chairs done and everything.
