I bought two tables this weekend. Both need some work.
It’s a folding table but it’s currently missing a leg. Which is interesting because I bought a leg for it on Sunday and the leg cost me more than the entire table did…. almost twice as much! (how does this happen?) Total cost to this point is still <$10 but still.
Table #2 is from Sunday’s trip to brunch @ D’s:
Step 2 = decide whether to leave it as is, paint it some other color, or strip it & refinish it. Painted wood makes me a little sad sometimes, so I’m leaning towards the refinishing route…. which means chemical stripping in this case, I think. There are at least 2 layers, possibly three, to go through and they look like they’re old, possibly lead-based and will likely be a medium-pain-in-the-butt to get off…..
