My friend gave me her mother's kitchen table. It's not your average kitchen table.....It's HUGE and ROUND!!! I think the table originally cost $$$$. It was in bad shape when I got it. The mom had caught a floral arrangement on fire and burned part of the table. Then she cleaned it with some harsh cleaner and it reacted with the finish, turning it into a sticky mess! Of course we'll take the table!!!
I didn't get a good before picture - but this is it after hubby took it apart. I just love power tools!!! We plained it down pretty good - it took the burn mark right. Then finished with light sanding to get it really smooth. I didn't bother sanding the base - it is getting paint!
Meet my new favorite stain - Rust-Oleum's "Driftwood". That's exactly what it looks like! It's perfect for this project because it will be living outside!
That's me!! Of course I do all my DIY projects in tie-dye!!
We took out the rotten fake wood inlays and prepared the surface for tile!!
And here it is with super cute 1" tiles. It makes me think of the ocean!! Don't you love the Lazy Suzan on top! My kids LOVE this - we've never had one before!
I sealed it with Rust-Oleum's Ultimate Spar Varnish. It has maximum weather protection!!
I love that it can seat 10 people comfortably!
I couldn't resist painting the base a bright turquoise color! Spray paint, of course!!
It's pretty bright, but the outdoors can handle it!!
I love how it turned out - it's totally me!!
