A quick "Before & After"

Now that the dust has settled (I think) it's time to get down to the business of before's & after's!
Unfortunately, each new year of JunkFest produces its own brand of crazy, and getting pics of our finished products seems to fall by the wayside. Which means, also unfortunately, that I have a lot of ugly 'before' pics....and not so many 'afters.'

Such is the case with this beautiful oak table I refinished. If you can peek through the white chairs, you'll see that the top has been stained a warm walnut color, and the bottom was painted in Annie Sloan's Old White chalk paint. I used a clear Minwax finishing paste over the chalk paint and did some light distressing.

Clearly, some TLC was in order.

Another shot of her at JunkFest 2011....or at least the top of her anyway.

I paired her with some cute white chairs with aluminum numbers on the back (in case you forget where you were sitting).

Yes, that's it for 'after' pics. Sorry. If the sweet woman with the discerning taste who purchased
this lovely has any shots of her in her new home, we'd love to see them! Meanwhile, I'm linking up with Donna's SNS, and MMS's Furniture Feature Friday.

Thanks for stopping by!
