Beautiful Carved Table Repairs

I was given this not so beautiful table...


and as you can see it has a few problems but I was 
determined to save this beautiful mess from the dumpster.

Step one was to remove the veneer. It was partially off
and it came off rather easily using a paint scraper. 


When all the veneer was removed the table top had several  scratches. It needed a good sanding with the palm sander and then some wood filler. 

The top is still not perfect but a few coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Duck Egg Blue filled in many of the scratches.


The table legs and sides are gorgeous and look
awesome painted so I actually don't mind that the top is 
a little imperfect.


I love this beautiful table with it's imperfect top and I'm so
glad I saved it from the dumpster!
