A face lift works wonders...

A few weeks ago I posted about a tacky old table that my sister had given me. At first I was just going to throw it out. Then I started thinking this is really old, but it is solid wood and was an expensive table once upon a time. So I decided to give it a new life. I am going to repost the before pictures and a couple of ones where I was working on it.

Notice it is suppose top have 6 nob's. It's seen better days.


The next two are pictures of me sanding it for the new face lift.



After a lot of sanding and trying to decide what I wanted to do I can now show you the finished product and say that I am please that I didn't throw it away.. Are you ready ?.... TA DA....

The new and improved table.


I decide to go with four nob's instead of six. I used some wood filler to fill in the  holes in the center of the drawer. I painted it a  dark chocolate brown and did a little stencil work on the top.  I am please with my new little table. It was a lot of work, but I really am glad I gave it a face lift instead of a lift to the trash. Now you know what keeps me busy. Next I am going to tackle a very large desk that I spent way to much money for years ago. With luck it will have a new life  as well. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I think I might be up to my knees in sanding and painting once again. I will keep ya posted!
