November 23, 2012

We are on a roll with DIY projects! Our kitchen chairs have been on their last legs (literally) for a long time now. They were unstable, easy to tip over, way too light for fidgety kids and cheap Ikea creations circa 10 years ago. They had to go - and I wanted them gone before Dylan started crawling and pulling up on things. We found a steal of a deal on Craig's list for a farmhouse style table, four chairs and a bench for $75. Charlie got it for $60 because the table top really needed to be refinished and it was listed as 'pretty good condition.'  We've never refinished anything so we weren't sure how it would turn out, but it's awesome! All of the imperfections sanded out and it's good as new. Happy eating, finally!

The damages: scratches, water damage and two pink stains
The same two areas after sanding - all gone!
