At some point this summer, I'll try to help her "fix" it.
T wanted something different. She'd seen an octagonal shaped table and like it, so that's what sizwe went for. If all else fails, it can be moved into her husband's "man" cave for poker nights! It should easily seat six, and maybe a couple of small kids.
The finish on this: sanding, conditioner, dark walnut, provincial, watered down "sienna brown" paint brushed on to tone down grain, then more provincial, then coats and coats of polyurethane. The base is the same, but I used espresso on it to give it a "blacker" tone. I loved the finish - it made a somewhat rustic table look very rich.
In pieces Together
My dining room chair has a really large seat, I think T has something smaller in mind.
Finished - before pick up
And, the nasty scratch attained during the move! It looked really large to me, but T says it's only a small scratch. She was most upset by what look like teeth marks in the edge!
I think we can fix it! I'm anxious to get a good "after" picture of this table in use!
