I will not mention the rising stress levels as a result of my not cleaning and getting the guest room ready to you at all....promise.
Saw this table at Goodwill and thought it would work well in the kid's game room/TV room/school room/bonus room.
This side panel was loose, and had to be secured in place with wood glue.
I took all the hardware off and filled the holes with wood filler, because I was definitely not going to use the ugly hardware it came with...(again, sorry, took the "before " picture after I got rid of the hardware) You will just have to take my word for it that it was ugly... as in hurts- your- eyes- ugly.
Then...my husband, foolish man that he is, let me use his band sander . I was just going to "lightly sand the worst grime and dirt off ", because who wants to use soap and water when she can use power tools?
I was not prepared for my own reaction to using "power tools" for the first time..
I was having so much fun, I did not want to stop!
So...This? Right here? is proof that I should not ever be left alone with power tools again.
I sanded the poor thing to with-in an inch of its life...
That mark on the side? A big gash made with the sander.
The table top was all grainy and not pretty at all.
