Table Project, cont.

Let's just get the painted fingernails over with right away...
yes, they have taken some abuse over the last two days...the verdict is still out on whether these nails will last more than another couple days...and yes, they are mine, all mine, real, self-grown.


I finished sanding the top and put a coat of oil finish on Monday night. The random-orbit sander makes lots of dust...so I did it out front. Ick..that chair has got to go...or get painted or something. Paint. it solves lots of problems. I painted the legs today. Can't really see the color too well in the photo, but it is a green color...I love it. In fact I decided today that I'm going to paint the bottom cupboards in my kitchen exactly this color! Kirk was cool with it...so it won't be long now!
The finished table. Now I have to decide what to do with the chairs. I'm thinking paint everything but the seats...or maybe the bar across the top. What do you think?

Oh, I checked with my mom on the history of the table/chairs since they have been around as long as I can remember. She said the same thing! They were hers when she was little and said she always remembers them being around. So...maybe they are around 65+ years old or more.

They are still sturdy and strong...ready for the next generation!

Gotta batten down the hatches here in SE MN....it's so dang windy.
