dropping like flies

November 30, 2010 by momm7540
Are you feeling abandoned yet? I lost 3 followers yesterday.
{sad face}
I’ve been super busy finishing up all my furniture projects before this Thursday (when I move into my booth)
Before you guys give up on me I will show you a quickie before and after .
I got ahead of myself and forgot to take a “before” picture. After scouring craigslist for a similar table and chairs, Score! I found one.
Except the table I purchased was in horrible condition (unlike the one above). The story was(in short): Husband and Wife got a divorce, Husband kicks wife out of the house, husband soon finds out that the wife gets the house, husband destroys everything in the house before wife returns.
{eeek!}
Stinks for the husband and wife situation, good for me! I got the table and four chairs for fifteen bucks!
It was pretty banged up . So, I just sanded down all the stain and started from scratch and ended up with this:
{{PRICE TAG” $150}} SOLD
ignore all the mess …this is in my husbands garage. He gave up his “man territory” so I could have a space to finish up all my furniture. He has even been staying home and watching the kids.
grin.
{Isn’t that sweet?}

I suppose this is more of a “middle” picture. I ended up staining the top an aged chestnut . It turned out great! I’ll have an actual “after” for you later.

Hang in there, I have some more great “afters” coming tomorrow!

    I enjoy your before and afters and envy the fact that you actually follow through with projects… Not me, although I have good intentions of doing so.

    Sorry people left you yesterday. How rude!

  3. Great looking table! Don't feel bad, I lose followers even when I post frequently. If it's more than a couple in a few days, I go back to my last post to make sure I didn't curse or something that offended people! : ) I have to say I stop following my share as well, sometimes blogs change and that's not what I followed them for originally, but then I add new ones, so I guess it evens out {for me, anyway}.

  4. WOW!!! you just gave me inspiration to re-do my table!!! :)

  5. It turned out great!

    p.s. I'll never stop following you :)

  6. Great job! I'm impressed!
