This has been a rough year (financially) for Clint and myself. It started with an outdoor drain needing to be installed so our basement would stop backing up. Then a kidney stone that came with HUGE medical bills (Gotta love when insurance only covers part of the problem). Now, a new boiler (ours is leaking and over 50 years old). All of these have completely drained our savings and our sanity. With that, any hope of a budget to remodel parts of our paradise, or finish what we started, are on hold. I feel like this :*-(
We are living on love. Which isn't so bad, but is challenging.
One room in our home that needed a little, itty-bitty, teeny-tiny, makeover is our dining room. After finishing our buffet (finally), I moved to the dining room table.
This table was given to me,for free, from a friend of the family, who thought it would be perfect in my space. They were very correct!
I love the style and look of the table, along with the size that suits our small dining room.
But it needed some work. It was dinged and the stain was starting to wear. Also, there was a leaf for the table that was never found. So, the table had a long divided line in the middle that was uneven. Also, the dark stain made the room feel heavy.
After a light sand, wood filler, primer, and left over paint from our ceiling, I think we have a Pottery Barn look alike table....for $0! We had everything we need in our basement from past projects! No trip to Home Depot needed!
One purchase we may make in the future is a glass top, to protect it from nicks or stains.
P.S. Don't worry, those are kiwi's on the table.
