My Table

This table belonged to my Grandma who passed away in February. I feel so blessed to be the one who was able to have it. My Grandma told me so many times how she wished her table could be refinished. I wish i would have done this for her while she was still with us but I know she would be so pleased with it and happy it is still in the family:)

I wasn't able to get a before picture of the table but this is a picture of one of the six chairs after i had already sanded the seat and arms. The base is what the whole table looked like.

My dad lent me his sander and I sanded the table top and each one of the chairs. I decided on jacobean stain for the table top and the chair seats and arms. I did one coat of stain and loved it so i stopped at one application.

I spray painted the table and chair legs along with the chair spinals heirloom white. I thought the color was fitting sense this table is now an heirloom:)

I used a satin polyurethane over the stain and used a clear spray paint on the white paint. I am so Happy with the way it came out. I loved doing this project it was a ton of work but so worth it! My Grandma was an amazing cook, we ate so many delicious dinners with her and my Grandpa at this table. We spent so many hours playing games and visiting at this table. I am a really sentimental person and get chocked up thinking about how happy my grandma would be that this table is still in our family and will be forever:)

Your Grandma is so proud of you! You did such an amazing job. It's so nice to know that family and "things" are still so important. Many people would have looked at the table needing refinishing and pass up the opportunity to have such a treasure in their home for something "new". You my friend... have both!
