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!
