Kitchen Table/Chairs Make Over.

Recommended Posts

Hey guys/gals. Seeing how I’ve been off work for almost the last month I took it upon myself to step out of my comfort zone. Wood working. I’ve never been good at it. Our kitchen table was embarrassing to be honest, but was solid. When we moved across the country in 2014 we sold our beautiful Pub Style Table & Swivel Chairs. Wife & I regret it sincerely. So I’m attempting to somewhat replicate it. We did decide to go with a darker top. Dark Walnut 2 coats of stain. 
 

currently this is where I’m at…

 

1 coat of Polyurethane waiting to fully dry & sand. Will do two more coats.   
 

melamine paint for the chairs over quick light coat of bullseye primer. 
 

I must say this is a lot of work that I’ve never been good at….

 

last pic.. second coat after 320 grit sand. Looks gorgeous!!

Today we got two outta three chairs with 3 coats & the one chair with 1 coat. Table now has 5th coat of polyurethane & last coat was pre sanded with 400g over the previous 320g. The lip around table has been primed & 2 coats of paint. I must say, this was a lot more time consuming than I though.. however I am a perfectionist… 

 

so tomorrow I’ll have to touch up the 2 chairs, finish the third, apply 3rd coat to lip around table, & prep & prime the base.

I know what you mean about time consuming  , when I did my new desktop I went 2 coats of stain and 8 coats of polyurethane and waited 24 hours between coats --- it is holding up great , I used MinWax

Yep, you done messed up now.  The list of "Honey do's" will never stop now.

 

You gotta screw stuff up like that.  Then they think you're a moron who can't do such things, and they'll leave you to your Hondas.
