Fussing Over the Farm Table December 27, 2012
Wow! Two days in a row! Teacher, I’m here!
This is what happens when I’m taking a va-cay from the shop! Of course, my vacation includes getting the farm table top refinished. (Oh boy!) That was my goal today. I knew I had a beauty on my hands, (thank you, dear Craig!) when I found this 6 foot long farm table, that was solid wood. No veneer! Hate that veneer stuff! It should be outlawed.
I remember when the farm table’s former owner said “all you need is some varnish”, (to cover the missing varnished areas), I thought, “oh, sure!” Nothing is ever that simple. And I was reminded of that, this afternoon, as I sanded the piece with my new sander, for at least 3 hours. Minimum! Thank goodness I found a perfect stain match and the legs were In good shape! Tomorrow, we’ll take her to the shop and apply the poly acrylic.
The rest, of my vacation includes taking down the tree, in the front window. Fun, eh? But it sure was pretty. thanks to Patti!
