A Classic Antique Kitchen Table

A few months ago I did this kitchen set, and I got a great feedback from my Facebook followers.


Ligia asked me to help her find a similar table so she could have the same set for her kitchen. There are lots of pedestal tables for sale, but the really beautiful ones are hard to find for a reasonable price. I was lucky to see a gorgeous one on Craigslist, not too far from my house. It was $60, which is a bargain for the quality and condition of the piece.


I restained the top with one coat of Antique Walnut from General Finishes, and two coats of Rustoleum Dark Walnut.
The bottom is Valspar March Breeze, glazed with Minwax stain – Provincial.
Here is the result.


And because this finish is quite popular, I decided to do a quick video to show how I did it. I wouldn’t say it is an in-depth tutorial, but it has all basics steps, and if you want to tackle a project like this, I’ll be happy to answer your questions.

It all started in the spring of 2013. I realized how tired I was to see my house entirely decorated with IKEA stuff. Nothing against IKEA, but after 12 years, I just needed some change. I wanted stylish, original furniture, but noticed that everything I liked from retail stores was way out of my budget. Thanks to Google, Youtube, and a couple of amazing blogs, I was able to discover and explore the world of furniture refinishing, and it was the beginning of my addiction. I now spend my days rescuing old, dull, unwanted pieces of furniture to give them a fresh look so they can be displayed, used and loved again for many more years to come. Thanks for stopping by.
