Isn't it funny when you are pumped and ready to start a project, and you're sanding and sanding and then you're like.... *gasp* I forgot to take a "before" picture! Well I totally started to do that with this table, as you can see in the top picture. Thank goodness I stopped myself in mid-sanding swipe and said...
"DUR SUSAN.. grab your camera!"
So this is the end result of the many many hours of working long and hard on this table. Even though there were days where I was frustrated with it, I appreciate it 110%. Why? Because I stepped out on a limb that I have never ventured across in the past with a few new techniques and materials that I had never used before. Honestly, I was scared.... Very very scared to mess it up.
But I'm soooo very thankful that I did take those scary steps, outside of the comfortable norm that I am use to. The table turned out something more than I ever imagined it would. It is so very beautiful and I am jealous that my friend C will have it in her house and it's not staying here.
This is just a quarter of the rest of the 1930's dining set that I am doing for her. There is a matching china cabinet, buffet and 6 chairs that go with the table left to transform in the lab. I'm so stoked and cannot wait to show them to you guys!
