Happy Memorial Day

Good Morning Everyone
I am just sitting out in the CRISP morning swinging...it is Quite and waiting on the house to wake up. 
I thought I would get a blog post in before the Day gets too busy...Well I might get it started...SMILES!!

I have posted a couple blogs about tables that I got from a SURPRISE Auction that I found in our Town Square...this is one more of those tables. 

When I got this little one...it was so Wobbly ...but Good Bones...that is always what I look for...
 In this picture I am taking the corner braces off, they were busted and I had to repair 3 of the 4

The top of the table was pretty scuffed up, but nothing that was not repairable...




I took the whole thing apart and started my repairs...as you can see it needed lots of repairs..but hey I only paid $5 for the table...SMILES...




I let the glue set for about 48 hours..finishing up some of my other projects...WINK, WINK!!
I took all the clamps and straps off, put it all back together, except for the top, and it was ready for paint...
If you read many of my post, you know by now, I LOVE BLACK!!! So guess what color this table was to become...LAUGHS...
I sanded the whole thing with a 50 grit paper and then with a 220 grit...all the old finish came off and I was so glad....NO STRIPPING!!!

So after a couple coats of my favorite Valspar Satin Paint...I put the top back on and distressed and then did the finish to look like a Pottery Barn Piece...I also waxed with a Minwax Finishing Wac...It was a NEW TABLE...I love the color...of course...WINK..WINK... and now it is strong and I would not be afraid to set a lamp or anything else on it....LAUGHS... 
One of my little helpers

I hear the house waking up...my hubby has already been out here bugging me...
So I wish you all a SAFE AND HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!!!

Thanks for stopping by...Charlene
