So remember I brought home some pine boards from Lowe's on one of hubby's bowling nights. I planed & joined the boards. I then glued and pocket screwed them together. After sanding the table top I applied 2 coats of Early American Minwax stain to all the parts for the table. After that I applied about 7 coats of wipe on poly giving it a light sanding and wipe down in between each coat.
So onto some pictures
You can see where I cut about 2.5" off the top and the rest off the bottom.
I then cut hte 2x4 I had milled down and finished to the correct length for the apron. I used pocked screws to attach it to the table top and legs.
So here's our dining room before. This was the second time I had painted. It was ORANGE!!
I painted the inside of the house for a 3rd time and then we combined to the 2 cabinets to make it a hutch. It was a hamster cage hubby had built for the 4 hamsters we used to have.
That piece of plywood is what we used to throw over the oval table to enlarge when company came over. Then eventually it just stayed and I kept a table cloth over it!
And here it is again.................can we say "TABLE L-O-V-E"!!!!!!!!!!
