After sanding, sanding, more sanding, applying stripper (twice!), more sanding,
then staining, staining, more staining,
6 coats of polyurethane and a day and a half of waiting....
the table top came in tonight when Breadwinner got home and we assembled the table.
(*random side note: even though it's not terribly clean, do you love my giant chalkboard?)
In other words....
I was so excited I had to take pictures- even though it's night, and I haven't learned how to use my new, incredibly amazing flash Breadwinner got me for Christmas.
Bear with the poor lighting in these pictures....and the mess in the background...
OK- not done- because there is the problem of this little Ikea bench on the other side of the table.
What do I DO with it? We want to leave it free of fabric for now.
The kids sit there for meals and it makes for easier clean up.
Would you take it apart, strip it, and stain it to match the walnut top?
Or rough it up a bit and go with the same creamy white of the chairs?
Or the awesome blue of the table legs?
I'm soooo close to finishing this transformation. What should I do?
