The "boom-a-rang" table


I am so EXCITED!  This is my very FIRST POST to my FIRST EVER BLOG. Since before Christmas,  I have been stalking other blogs while being totally mesmerized by the many talented, smart, brave and adventurous women and men, who regularly share their experiences of family, home, travel, interior designs, cooking, technology and thought-provoking topics.  I hope my post can be as engaging to you as other posts have been to me.

I  have selected, as my first project, a table I purchased back in the mid-1980's at a garage sale.  This versatile little table has been in my home, both of my sons' homes, and has now boom-a-ranged back to my house. 

Here is a before picture of the table.

I lightly sanded the table and sprayed primer on the table.

I sprayed several light coats of Valspar Satin Interior/Exterior - Porcelain and brushed Sherwin Williams Wood Classics Interior Wood Oil Stain - Fruit Wood on top and used paper towels to wrap off the stain until I reached the look I liked.  I still need to add a polyurethane satin top coat.  I plan to use this "old new" table upstairs in my landing area in front of a leather love seat.

Here are a few peeks at the table.

Any suggestions regarding either the table or my new blog are welcomed.  When the top coats have been applied and the table is moved upstairs, I will share the new look with you.

Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting.
