A Tale of Two Tables

Two Tables Tale...this is a tale of two tables that I have refinished.  And as you can see they are very much alike but different.  The problem is I forgot to take a before picture of the after one. And I forgot to take an after picture of the before one. Does that make sense?  Let me try again..So the tale is the table in the before picture I bought from my Niece and refinished it in a very similar paint design, but I didn't get a picture of it, I put it down at the fleamarket and it was gone in 3 days.  So I found this one in the after picture at one of the local thrift shops, and as I said I forgot to take a picture of it...


Anyhow this one also started out as black, I sanded with the palm sander, then painted with a grayish/blue paint that I used in my kitchen.  I left some of the details black for the contrast.  After the paint dried I sanded again but just mainly on the edges, I didn't want too much of the gray to come off.  I finished it off with a ebony stain.  Also I used a hard paste wax on the top, just to add a little more durability since this is a table for eating on.  I hope this one sells as fast as the other.. hope you enjoyed my table tale..  : )
