Was it just me or was it HARD to get back into the swing of things yesterday after a nice long weekend relaxing with family? I made myself move and spent a good 4-5 hours cleaning out my garage. I like to clean it so I can enjoy it clean for about .05 seconds and then fill it back up again. That’s the way it works around here!
Today I want to share a charming farm table with you. A customer of ours actually approached me and was selling this table- it had a great shape, a beautiful wood top, and I couldn’t pass it up!
I ordered a set of casters from Rockler– a great solution to add some height, and even make the table moveable!
BUT, before I added the casters, I painted the table- I simply painted the base with Annie Sloan Old White. It took two coats, and then I distressed and sealed with clear wax.
After that was done, I flipped the table on its top, and drilled holes in the 4 legs. I had to borrow a bit from a friend as I didn’t have one quite big enough, so I don’t know what size it was, BUT it was big enough to fit the barrel of the caster slightly snug. I then hammered in the barrels, and then popped in the caster and stem.
When all was said and done, I was really happy with it- a sweet cottage charmer! I staged it with a couple of my own porch chairs for some pictures.
I just love the tone of the wood on this table top!
I took this piece to Lucketts and we paired it with my black and white chairs.
I am happy to say the table was the first piece of furniture I sold on Saturday, and the chairs were the last I sold on Saturday! It was a lucky set for me! 🙂
