Can you believe there’s only one week left until the ORC reveals!!! This last week I finished the the table, and purchased the slip covered chairs. The refinishing job on the table took much longer than I anticipated. The table I purchased was a Pottery Barn table that I found on Craigslist. It was black when I bought it, and I stripped and sanded all of it. My original plan was to stain the top and base. However when I stripped the base the original black paint bleed onto the wood and making it a blotchy, pink/purple hue. Not OK! Fortunately the top stripped down to bare wood…Sometimes plan B works out better, thankfully that was the case. I painted the base a bright white and just stained the table top.
I like how the white base looks against our tumbled stone floor, the wood stain may have made it too busy against the floor.
This next week is crunch time. I need to sew 6 pillows, paint the french doors, style the mantle and shelves above the TV area. Oh and I almost forgot, take a thousand picture, edit, and post the reveal. Yikes!
Don’t forget to head over to Linda’s blog Calling it Home and catch up with everyone else’s progress. See you next week!
