When I stumbled upon this find a few weeks ago, I knew for less than its $20 price tag, this junker of a dining table could be rehabbed into something fabulous.
So home with me it came. After disassembling the base from the table top, the legs were treated to a coat of oil-based primer and two coats of white paint.
The second step of this rehab moved me outdoors where the table top was sanded and stained a dark walnut. Lucky for me, I had a barely used can of stain leftover from my master bathroom vanity that was perfect for this project.
After several coats of stain, and plenty of time in between each for drying, the table was reassembled and checked off of the DIY to-do list.
True confession: I have absolutely no room in my house for this table and it’s breaking my little furniture flipping heart. There just has to be an empty corner somewhere…
