Happy Friday Friends! I get a lot of questions asking where I purchased my dining table. So, I just wanted to share with you the before and after of my thrifted table. Most of my home is thrifted decor and furniture. With three kids and a tight budget, there is not much wiggle room to spend a lot of money on furniture and decor. I have to say that the table I had previously from Target worked just fine but I’ve always dreamed of having a farmhouse looking table with big fat beefy legs. I could barely believe my eyes when I walked into Goodwill one day and found this beauty on castors for only $60! My thoughts were that I would refinish it and sell it which gave me an excuse to buy it. Well, during the process of refinishing it I became attached to it so we sold our other table and kept this sweet baby! Let me tell ya…after hours of sanding and 2 sore hands later, I’m in farmhouse table heaven.
Finally the top was sanded! But, oh there are 2 leaves yet to sand! Not complaining here as it makes the table so much more grand having 2 leaves!
I mean really, is this the same table? The ugly orange is gone! Yay! The top is stained with Dark Walnut Minwax Stain and the bottom is painted in Behr Paint Swan Wing. I then distressed it and antiqued it with Antiquing Gel. I sealed the top with 6 coats of Oil Based Polyurethane (can never get enough coats on a highly used surface) and the bottom is sealed with wax. And yes, I keep my kids picture in their santa hats up all year round, lol.
It’s the perfect home for my farmhouse bowl and pitcher and of course I would never leave out my sweet lavender! I can’t get enough of this lavender!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope that we can meet up on Instagram and Facebook as well! Have a great weekend!
