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

  4. Let's face it, one of the busiest places in the modern home is the kitchen and dining room area. People come and go at all hours, eat meals there, and work on all sorts of projects. Since this space is used for pretty much everything, it is essential to have a kitchen table in it that is of high quality. Elly Kitchen Tips

  5. Kitchen is the place for cooking marvels and wonders so having a comfortable and user-friendly surrounding is imperative. The joy of cooking makes kitchen a significant place so it should always be upgraded to facilitate the sharing and preparation of home cooked meals. Nylon Cooking Utensils
