Rescued table

I know I have spoke of my friend Deb before she has an amazing house in the country with a fabulous barn, a few out buildings and a yard filled with treasures. I went out there a while back and I must admit I always get a bit giddy when I head her way because you never know what treasures you will find!
Well when I drug home an old butcher block oak table top that was covered in dirt and bird poop and some awesome old table legs from there I wasn't sure if I could really make it beautiful!
I scrubbed it and sanded it for a couple days! Had hubby help me to construct a solid underneath frame for the legs. So this is what I ended up with.....

I have featued this table at so check out her blog for more great features!
Aren't those legs amazing? I love everything about this table! I must admit I have been dragging my feet to put this up for sale. I think I will take it to a sale I have this weekend just to see what people say about it! Might even find a buyer! LOL
I worked on a few more things this week too.

This little table is so cute! It was a horrible hunter green color!

I got this hutch painted now trying to decide if I should stain over it or just leave it alone? Help? Alright I'm off to bed so hope you all have a nice weekend! Traci


  1. I LOVE all your painted pieces....they are gorgeous! The table is an awesome find and you sure brought it back to it's original beauty!

    Maybe put a little stain on the hutch--
    give it a little depth.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. LOVE THAT TABLE!!! I would have a hard time letting that one go. That little table looks great too. As for the hutch, I would stain it, because that is what I like:) Thank you for linking this up to Rustic Restorations Weekend!

  6. That table is amazing! What did you use to finish the top?

    1. I used a dark walnut finish with a satin poly on top. Thanks Deb!

  7. YOur table and side table are fabulous! I'm thinking just a little shabby sanding on the cabinet and call it a day!!


  8. Love that table ... the legs make it so special. Great job. You really know how to bring a piece to life.
