The Mother of All Makeovers- A Vintage Handmade Kitchen table set 

I’m super super excited about this makeover project!! It’s old and tacky but has character and it’s just the right size for my small kichen which currently has a big oval pedestal table that’s taking up far too much room. 

So I saw this little thing on a buy and sell group on Facebook  Friday night for a wonderful $30! I woke early on Saturday and made the one hour trip to pick it up and luckily it fit in my small car. 

  

  
    

When I got it home and started the daunting task of sanding I realized that the top of the table wasn’t solid wood. Instead it was some sort of faux wood panelling. A little disappointing but once the wheels in my head staring turning I got an even better idea and the cheap paneling became a blessing in disguise! 

    

So off it came and I was left with this frame…

 

So I got to sanding…

  
The table top frame is completely sanding and secured together (it originally had an insert but I won’t be using it) and is ready for the next step which begins tomorrow. So be sure to tune in again soon for an update. This is going to be so much fun!!
