MIX AND MATCH TABLE REDO




I HAD FAMILY VISITING THIS WEEK SO I DIDNT
HAVE A CHANCE TO GET ALOT DONE BUT I DID
FINISH A TABLE PROJECT THAT I HAD 
STARTED AT THE BEGINNING OF SUMMER!

I STARTED OUT WITH TWO TABLES WHICH I 
DECIDED I WOULD MIX AND MATCH AND
END UP WITH MY DREAM PIECE.
YOU REMEMBER THOSE OLD MIX AND
MATCH GAMES YOU PLAYED WHEN YOU
WERE A KID. 

SO HERE IS WHAT I STARTED WITH
AN OLD OUTDOOR SLATE TABLE THAT THE 
SLATE WAS BREAKING SO I HELPED
IT ALONG...

THE WROUGHT IRON LEGS WERE STILL IN
GREAT CONDITION SO I SPRAY PAINTED
THEM TO FRESHEN THEM UP. 

THEN I FOUND THIS OLD COFFEE TABLE AT
THE THRIFT SHOP FOR $5
I LOVE THE WOOD ROUND TOP AND KNEW I WAS
GOING TO USE IT FOR THIS PROJECT.


SO I TOOK OFF THE LEGS AND SANDED THE
TOP UNTIL IT WAS BARE! I THEN
APPLIED A POLY SHADE VARNISH WITH THE
STAIN AND VARNISH IN ONE AND 
A STAR WAS BORN...







 
I THINK I WILL NAME HER
MISS MIX & MATCH!
IF YOU NOTICED THE BENCH I HAVE WITH
THE TABLE ITS BECAUSE IT GOES WITH
THE CHAIRS I HAD REDONE 
ON THIS POST, "STILL OF THE NIGHT"


 THAT MY NEIGHBOR PUT OUT BY
THE CURB. I FINALLY GOT THAT DONE
AS WELL.

HOPE YOU LIKE HER SHE WILL RESIDE UNDER
MY GAZEBO ON MY BACK PATIO..

  6. Your table turned out fabulous! I love the combination of wood and wrought iron. I have a iron base outdoor table with a glass top that I have been thinking about replacing the glass for wood. You definitely made up my mind with your stunning table re-do!

  12. Oooh, lovely! Way to save both the pieces! I love it. What's the height of the table? It looks lower than a kitchen table but a bit higher than a coffee table? I'm curious. Great job!

  16. I love the wood and iron duo! I have been working on an old wrought coffee table for my son's new house (it will be on his screened porch) and was wondering about using a wood top instead of buying a new glass one. After seeing your table I am going with the wood top. I love that table of yours :)
