A Drop Leaf to Die For


This was the super gross, gooey, gunky drop leaf that I got for free! I skipped the gym on Monday morning to take advantage of time away from the store to do some major sanding jobs.

This is the after!


I sanded the top of the table with 60 grit sand paper. Layers of paper and gunky goop stripped away to reveal a beautiful wood.


I used Dark Walnut wood stain for the top and painted the base of the table black.


Isn't she lovely?


Small and narrow enough to serve as an entry or console table with super long and slim leaves to comfortably seat a dinner party of four to six.


Just to emphasize the amazing transformation, here is the before again:


And the after:


Stop by to see her in person at the Furniture Friday reveal!
