A New Kitchen Table Top

Refinished Table Top

As much as I love the quick and transformative effect of painting furniture with chalk paint I have also begun delving into refinishing and staining wood. It seemed daunting before and I was afraid of ruining furniture in the process but after our coffee table frame broke it didn’t seem as risky to try to refinish the table top.

Two hours of scrubbing to finally remove all of stain.IMG_3179After one coat of Sun Bleached by Varathane the colour was exactly what I wanted and all of these beautiful textures and patterns that had been masked by the dark stain were now revealed.

Originally I had planned to have the table frame fixed but the quote from the welder was going to cost as much as buying a new table and it was too big for our new living room anyway.

What I didn’t mention is that this table top is 1 metre square and it ended up being the perfect size and shape for our kitchen table. It was quite simple to remove the round top and screw the base and legs onto the former coffee table.

This is the best photo I can find of what the table looked like before.

Now the table has a more modern feel and is way more functional in this space.
