I really Started This Project, Sanding and Staining a Dining Room Table

Pin It
OK, I was feeling all warm and happy about the chair project.

So, when the kids were home I asked if Son #2 
would help Husband carry out our table
and I'm going to re-finish the top.


Sanding and Staining a Dining Room Table

The table is HUGE, it has 2 leaves too and I'm doing them also. 
The table is about 30 years old and has made all but the first move with us. 

It's so strong and has had a  number of little boys sitting 
on top to play games and cards

Sand and Stain a Dining Room Table

First sanding with the belt sander.

I start to work on it early morning and about 10 it's just to hot to work in the garage.

This is a NO HURRY project.

This piece will move with us again.

And YES, I wanted to paint it White, 
but.... wait

Cushion Time - Part 2

Pin It
Had a couple of questions about my chair,  See First Post HERE

At Goodwill the chair had a couch and another piece which was like a lounge. They were all priced separate and I now wish I would have purchased the other pieces. 
(I've been back and they are not there) 

I started the project, sanding and staining the third week of June after returning from Florida. I always seem to need something different when I get back. With the heat, it was the drying time, the stain was dry to the touch, but I brought it in from the garage and let it sit for about 2 weeks in the air conditioning. 

Re-doing a Fifties Chair and Cushions

I added a layer of foam to each side of the cushions.


Re-doing a Fifties Chair

I've really never done anything like this before (cushions), 
but with a book for the library. I was going to try.

I purchased 4 yards of each color of fabric, I used Duck Cloth

Re-doing a Fifties Chair

The sewing was not hard, just lots of time, measure, measure, cut, sew, fit, sewing again, until I liked it. 

Re-doing a Fifties Chair

And yes, I planned on mixing up the patterns, 
I just like it.  
Hand stitched everything closed, a zipper was more than I could do.

Re-doing a Fifties Chair

This was NOT hard, just lots of time.  If you are thinking of doing this, DO IT.
