I am so super excited to be a part of Transformation Thursday over at The Shabby Chic Cottage!!! I have been waiting to be a part of the transformation for awhile, but I didn't really have anything to transform or I forgot to take pictures, not this time!!! While the Hubs and I were cleaning the garage out, which you can read about it here. The hubs and I came across our old dining room table. We have had it in our garage since we moved in which was a year half ago. We were going to throw the whole thing away. But then I thought you know the table part I could sand that down and make a small table for our back patio so lets keep it. But the legs on the other hand I can't do anything with. Until a light bulb went off in my head!!!
Here is the base to the table, turn upside down of course.
I popped the base part off using my rubber mallet.
I then cut the wood into two different sections, so it would be easier to handle. I think measured from the center of the cylinder 4 inches so it would create my base. I also cut the spindle thing off the top. This was the first time I used a Miter Saw, I was really nervous. But once I made my first cut, I felt strong!
I glued the circle things back on to the cylinder. I then found some white color paint from our paint stash.
I then got my Ralph Lauren Glaze that was shown to me by the Shanty2Chic Sisters, I have fallen in LOVE with this stuff. You just paint it on and then wipe it off. The more you wipe the more that comes off. This stuff is awesome.
