I hate watching furniture pieces that need tlc get over-looked
at my yard sale. There are pieces that other folks just can't
see the potential in yet I see it so clearly. That's what
happened this past weekend, two gate leg tables got passed
over numerous times. I saw 2 different ladies looking and
thinking then a husband would come over and say "No".
Here is the BEFORE photo of the first of the tables, I couldn't even get $5 for it,
and it's an antique solid Canadian made piece.
The top piece is seriously damaged with a split and huge crack and I wouldn't even try to fix it,
and that is all ppl see. But there is so much more to this table then that one broken piece.
All I used was a screw driver to take the top off, unscrew the side legs, and screw one of the good
pieces back on to the top and wah-lah I have a super cute sofa table made with quality wood.
A coat of ASCP in Pure White, a little distressing with a 120 grit paper, and a waxing made it perfect.
If you would like to see how I use Annie Sloan wax to finish this piece off check this short video:
HAPPY YARD SALING!!!
