Table Makeover

Remember by Table from Tuesday? 
My friend gave me this table that someone left in thier rental property. 
 Lets just say it was FILTHY, like dog doo filthy!  I saw potential and afterall it was FREE!

I cleaned, and cleaned some more.  Then sanded it all down.

I painted it white and stained the top with dark walnut. Wait until you see the beauty of the top!  GORGEOUS!

I sanded it up nice and good to antique it.  Then wiped it with wax. 
 The wood was very dry so it completely absorbed the wax.

I also gave Mr. Squirrel a few coats of white gloss spray paint.

               Before                     &                  After

Join  us Saturdays at for the weekend wrap 
 up           party!


  1. Gorgeous!! I'm so not brave enough to mess with furniture :-/

  2. Oh I love it!! The detail on the top is soooo cute! You did a great job! Love that little squirrel too! I've been looking for cute figurines like that every time I go to Goodwill!

  3. love the table and the staging... beautiful

  4. a coat of white paint and dark stain makes everything more beautiful, huh? you did a fantastic job! who knew that little inset detail was so beautiful? i love it!

  5. SO SO pretty! Love it! Just popping over from TT&J :)

  6. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love everything about this post.
    First off, HOW FREAKING CUTE IS THAT SQUIRREL? totally going to the dollar store and finding one for myself.
    Secondly, the table rocks. Good for you for seeing past the grime & dirt and making something anyone would swoon for!!

  7. The whole thing...Insanely Beautiful!

  8. Absolutely hands down a beautiful transformation! Score on knowing the right people to get a free table!

  9. I can't wait to do that type of finish on my kitchen table. I have 2 projects ahead of it, so it's not going to get done until at least the middle of the summer,but I'm SO looking forward to it. I really can't wait to see the look on my husband's face when I get it done. Making something over for little cost really floats my boat!
    Fondly, Tami
