I got married and moved far, far away from my home and family. This blog is to show things to my mom and anybody else that might want to see them.
I love to make things and it should go without saying that my primary mediums are music, crochet, and pies. Although, I am getting into bread-baking and other cooking projects.
When I was living alone in grad school my mom and dad found this adorable table with green painted chairs and legs and a varnished top. It had a few scratches and bad spots on top, but it was adorable, so they bought it and gave it to me. A few years and 4 states later, we are still using it. The varnishing was neither in good shape, nor waterproof, so I had been thinking of refinishing it for a while.
Enter summer (excessive heat)
The weather finally cooled off enough for us to go for it. I didn't get a really good before picture, but I think this first one gives you an idea of the condition of its condition.
We are so thrilled with it. The wood turned out to be in beautiful shape. What a happy surprise! Now it looks good and I can relax when we or guests put sweaty glasses on the table.
