Friday Night Posting........
Among the rubble and dust I took this table outside and lightly sanded it. I couldn't find the sander but did find it stowed away in an unusual place. The photo shows the first application of the finish on this table. We have been using this as our kitchen table but we are going to use it as and end table sitting between wingback chairs.
You get to see the dirt and all as this is my work zone. When you are busy you don't have time to freshen up the place. I will clean it all when all is done. Because of the way the finish looks on the table I may have to do the tops of a couple of other pieces.
This is one of the side pieces that folds down to the side of the table. I had to take the sides off of the table as the grooves between the main top had some really cleaning problem areas. It all sanded out easily with the electric sander.
We were overwhelmed but are happy as we officially took ownership of our newer home. The people had hired profession cleaners to come in and get the place ready for us. We saw it today for the first time without their furniture. I need to make some changes to some steps in the garage for Barney's needs. He needs wide steps and the typical 6 or 7 inches is not big enough for him. They left things for us to have and it was really nice of them. An old wooden strip ladder will be nice to have there already. They left their fake Canada Geese in the back yard along with other things. They were really very organized leaving us warranties for appliances and info for utilities. It will be quite a whirl that we will be in for awhile but we will just do things one day at a time. We have two boys coming to help us move boxes of things. We have 2 guys and a truck, coming one day to take all the major pieces. We will take a load of things down every time we go over to the newer house.
Thank your for stopping by today.
