The Table, The Whole Table, and Nothing but the Table

Hubby has finished varnishing our table.
This was how it looked in the spare room shortly after we got it home.


It had been a game getting it in the car that day though as it didn’t come apart, and well, an I10 is not exactly meant for furniture transportation.

Hubby sanded it down and judging from the colour of the wood surmised that it had probably been situated in a window alcove as the centre part was more bleached than the rest. Also one drop leaf was slightly darker than the other which would suggest it was the side not ‘facing out’ into the room.
We have no chairs yet and will try to get four to match the pine wood. But for now?
Wow.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Great job! My husband has been known to buy old worn tables just because they are made out of solid wood (he isn’t a fan of veneer and/or plastic)

    Lovely job. I did exactly the same with an identical table a few years ago.
