{O}nce your Granny's Table


Once A Granny Table--Not Anymore!
So Shabby Chic

Nice solid wood table.  It has one small leaf that is meant to be left in all the time.  With the leaf, you can sit five people.  The table comes with 5 chairs.  Perfect for the typical American Fam, right?  Don't statistics state that the average American Fam has 2 1/2 kidos?  {Not for me, I have FIVE}  If you only want to sit four, the fifth chair would be darling left in the corner with a pillow placed on it.

It has been refinished in black with trendy stenciling done on the top {this is why the leaf needs to stay inside the table}.  Each chair has also been refinished in black and I rubbed white into the detailing on the head rests.  This adds to the white stencils on the table.  The entire set has been distressed and glazed.  Everything has been sealed with poly and wax.  For sale today!

NOW, THE PROCESS..............................

BEFORE: Granny Table

Coming Along.....{my Hubby is glad-it's in his way}

Still need to paint the bottom, glaze and give it a finish coat-

The left one has detailing finished on the top and has been distressed w/steel wool.  The left, still needs to have the dust wiped off and more attention & work.

I glazed the top details with white paint.  
You can see the difference above-
Left has white added, Right is plain.

This detail adds to the white {stenciling} on the table top- 

I've displayed a little stuff {Center Piece} for the holiday...

HaPpY HaLloWEen!
