Table and Chair Redo


This is an update of one of my very first posts when I started blogging.  (Only 3 pictures and a few words.  Hope I've improved)   Anyway, I'm joining  Before Blogging Throughback Thursdays linky party  to show off something done before starting to blog.  Since refinishing the table I have been using it in my little dining nook and have used it for many table settings.  You can see my Thanksgiving tabletop below.

This table and 4 chairs have been sitting in my basement for years.  I finally  got around to painting them and I love them in my little dining nook.




That was the extent of the post.

Here is the latest tablescape.  It's my Thanksgiving table.  A very elegant  simple one since I am going to my
daughter's for Thanksgiving.  No cooking for me!  Well I do have to bring a salad if that counts.

Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, Barb! Wow - that table redo is awesome! I'm wondering what type of paint you used? I thought it looked like you'd stripped and stained it! Also, your fall tablescape is beautiful!

Great job on your table! Question for you, what paint color did you use and did you add some poly on top? I am going to re-do mine and am just curious on how to do it.
Over from Debbie's Newbie going to look around a little. Come on over if you have time

Have a great weekend,
