Last year, when I was in my first trimester of pregnancy, I decided I couldn’t stand looking at the table anymore.
See the table & chairs in background?
table dismantled and sanded/painted
Our rental house was entirely white trimmed, so we bought white curtain rods to match. I figured my husband and I could give the table a face-lift rather quickly working together.
Well, Danny dismantled it and helped me to sand it before the school semester got too busy.
We started the project in March.
I got this thing completely finished July 2nd.
Oh well, I was pregnant.
The Day I finished
I got the chair fabric (duck cloth? and vinyl) on sale at Hobby Lobby and stapled the new fabric right over the existing vinyl with quarter inch staples. ($12)
Where did I get the well loved table? From my sister Klara, who got it free from someone else. I really love this table and won’t be getting rid of it anytime soon; but, I see many more face-lifts in the future!
***I just got around to finishing a quilt I started (and mostly completed) with my mother in law over Christmas 2013. Pictures to follow with the quilt too.
