We have a great 4 person kitchen table that was a hand me down given to us by some sweet friends in Denton. I think that I’ll always have this table somewhere in our house no matter how large our family gets! I love this table!
When we set up our dinning area, everything was just a little dark to me. I knew the table needed a facelift, so here we go….
So this project went so well. Completely according to plan! Woo hoo! Or so I thought.
People. Do. Not. Rush. A. Project.
I was so thrilled with how it turned out and was so excited to get this table into the house that I used super thick coats of shellack to seal it and didn’t allow enough time for it to dry. I gave it 8 hours. I should have given it at least 12 hours overnight…
So what do I do? I call my Dad, duh. And now I have to sand down the finish and redo it. I’ll be more careful this time. However, I won’t have time to do this for quite a while, so I need a solution until I can fix it and paint the chairs to match.
Thank goodness for Target! I love me a cute table cloth! However I can’t STAND an uneven table cloth. Have you ever tried to straighten a circular table cloth on a smaller table? It’s impossible. No matter what you do, there is always a side that is longer than other. Every single time!! By the end of it I’m like, “Oh, I know it’s uneven. It’s called art.”
I’ve come up with a solution to make sure it looks great each time. I’m sure everyone knows this, but I just discovered it. I’m a slow learner…
