I immediately thought of my dining room table. My grandmother picked up at a yard sale back in the 50s for $5. From my mother’s account, my grandfather was far from impressed. It was nearly black and looked terrible. She stripped it, refinished it, and it was used for decades.
After several years of storage in my mother’s garage after my grandmother’s death, it is looking a little worse for wear, and I’m planning on doing something similar to the pictures you see.
That’s my practice board. I had Dave go to Home Depot to find a nice board that I could set over the small clawfoot tub in the main level bathroom. We don’t use the tub and I needed a place to store plants over the winter.
Now that I’ve done the practice board, I think I will progress to a handful of nesting trays and maybe do the OTHER side of the practice board before I tackle the dining room table. I’d like to have my technique solidly down and really know what I am doing.
Thanks Monica, for mentioning this project!
I will be staining the top edge and sides and bottom of this tray as well.
