The big table project is complete!

June 13, 2011

Our first night of eating at our 'new' table. I was so hungry I wasn't going to wait for Mum and Papi to sit down before I tucked into my broccoli.

Stages one and two of the project here and here.

The big table project progress update

June 5, 2011

You may remember, we are currently sprucing up our old table.  We are making excellent progress.  All the sanding is finished and the table and one bench seat have their first coat of paint on.  I think we’re going to need just one more weekend then we’ll be eating at the table again.

I was in the middle of the labour chain between Papi's sanding and Mum's painting.

The big table project

May 29, 2011

In the middle of the unpacking and sorting we’ve embarked on a family project.  What’s a little more mess?  We’re turning our old, tired looking outdoor table into a shiny, new dining room table.  Mum and Papi have been taking turns all weekend to sand off the peeling varnish.  I choose the new colour from the Home Depot but you’ll have to wait to see what that is!

A before shot.

Papi's turn at the sanding.

Stay tuned for a look at the finished product!
