Antique Dining Table Makeover

After 20 years I'm saying goodbye to my beautiful dining table. I bought this when I was first out of university living in Adelaide and working in the Royal Australian Airforce. There have been a LOT of good dinner parties and fun times around this table.

To freshen it up I painted the apron and legs then stripped back the top, restained and waxed it. It's so beautiful and I'll be a little sad when it sells.

Before:

Now, ready for sale:

 

 

 

 

 
It's got such sturdy legs, vintage wooden castors and a beautiful wooden table surface. Dimensions are:180cm by 105cm, 75 cm in height and approx 60 cm to bottom of apron.

  1. I love the contrast of the white legs against the dark top looks beautiful. Its hard to let go of things but I am sure this will sell fast & be appreciated by a new owner & you can feel proud
