In January my Uncle passed away (my Mom's brother John) One of his passions was woodworking. He made these three tables many years ago, they are made of pine with table tops that lift off. Plenty of storage for yarn and magazines. They also hide all the remote controls (I love that). I just couldn't leave them and so we brought them home and gave them a good cleaning and some fresh wood stain.
They remind me of simpler times when the furniture was crafted by the man of the house.
Gary and I use Minwax wood stain. They have many colors to choose from now, we chose a blue and a red stain. I didn't want to change them to much because Uncle John had made them. So Gary and I thought just changing the table top color would refresh them and bring new life to these very old tables.
And Wa-La here they are. I adore this shade of blue. It went on very nicely after we sanded all the varnish off.
The red table top had a lamp post and the lampshade that was on it was in very bad shape, so we purchased a new shade and I added a bit of whimsy. These little tables are a perfect size to nestle into a small corner.
Enjoy your week and keep warm, we had a lot of rain and hail off and on today. I couldn't wait to get home from work and curl up on the couch by the fire and crochet.
Big hugs to you all~Elizabeth
