The 9th Day of a Crafty Christmas: Table Makeovers [for family feasts!]
In order for us to have more than two other people over for dinner
we needed to think about getting a bigger dinning room table.
So when my mum offered me her old one,
I said yes - actually I said yes please!
I spent a few hours sanding it back,
with an orbital sander to make it easier,
it still took some super muscle to
get it back to the original timbers.
After just one coat of "Black Japan" stain it was ready for it's first use.
I held back from making it look shiny and sleek and perfect,
so it fits nicely into our well-loved home.
Bring on festive feasts and family dinners.
