Summertime Table

Today we are featuring a beautiful 1940s table makeover.





Just in time for summer dining, this antique table was picked up in pieces.

I didn't even know if it would all fit together, but luckily, the prior owners were so nice

as to tape the hardware in a plastic baggie onto the legs.

Here is where the table began:




The legs were sanded down and then painted with Ben Moore paint and underbody.

I used White Chocolate again.




Then the legs were distressed and attached to the table top for a fitting!




She then had to be flipped over, sanded, primed and painted, distressed, and waxed on top.





I have worked on these antique tables before... they feature a wonderful

stow-away leaf.




And here she is again all freshened up for summer.













Beautiful antique turned legs..









I'll be linking up this weekend with:

I'm so glad I stopped by your blog today because your project has given me courage to paint my table. I have a table just like yours except the curved part attached to the legs is not curved on mine. I have wanted to paint it for a long time but was hesitant to cover the old dark stain. Yours looks great so I am going ahead and painting mine. Thanks for the inspiration. If you are interested, link it up to my GRILL, BBQ and PICNIC PARTY now until Sat. night. There is a $25 giveaway. Hope you will come.-------Shannon

I found your blog through Miss Mustard Seed....

Thank you so much for posting this makeover - it looks fantastic. I have almost the same table sitting in my garage - trying to decide it I should refinish it or paint it. After seeing yours - I think I'll paint : )

I plan on using it for the kids to play games etc.

Great job!
