Our old table wasn’t a great fit of our new(er) house. I’ve been on the look out for a great deal on a round table. I found this little beauty on kijiji for $50.
I sanded it, and the two leaves that came with the table, down to bare wood.
I stained the table top walnut to match the other finishes in our open concept main floor. Isn’t it great when you have leftover product from previous projects that fit the current one? I gave it one coat of Varathane, but will likely give it an additional coat at a later date.
I mixed up a homemade chalk paint recipe using latex paint, plaster of paris, and water.
Lastly, I distressed the base with a fine sandpaper. The table without the leaves is large enough for our family, but we will need the additional surface area for guests. Not too shabby for a $50 kijiji find.
I’m also thrilled that our old table has been repurposed as a desk for my husband. It is a beautiful table that I definitely wanted to keep.
