ANOTHER REPURPOSED GATE LEG TABLE - white sofa table



This will feel like deja vu to some of 
you that read last weeks post about the
first rePurposing of a gate leg table I
did. I had two of them marked at $5 at
our yard sale yet neither of them sold.
I always feel bad for the stuff left
behind and it some how re-invigorates
me to find the time to rePurpose them
myself. This article is about the second
table that got a new life.











 Below is a good look at both the tables but the front one is
 the one that took me much longer to rePurpose because it
 needed a lot more patience. The veneer on all the flat boards
 was lifting at the edges and on both sides of each piece. The 
fold downs also had warped and the gluing and clamping
was going to take days.

If you are interested in the first article I wrote about
the table tucked in back you can find it here.


The front table had a shelf on the bottom and had was just a
 bit prettier. I unscrewed the the top boards and started the
 long process of gluing and clamping all the lifting veneer on
 the bottom self. Below I'm using a kitchen butter knife to get
 the glue between the layers.


While the glue was setting up I start to count all the 
hinges I got from these rePurposed tables.
NICE SCORE!


I reattached the original top board after it was fixed and I left
 all the old paint splatters and left over varnish on it when I 
painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I used a 220 grit 
sand paper very purposefully on the top to show all the 
unique levels of age it has.


After the distressing I used AS wax to make the top shine.
I have a short waxing video available to watch here:



GIVE IT A TRY YOURSELF!!!
