I was picking up an armoire for a charity project I'm working on and the owner of the home offered me this Ballard Designs kitchen table for $100. After looking up on their website how much it cost originally I was shocked... a pair of the chairs alone are $499 each.
The top was a
little very rough. There were a lot of dents and marks from wear and tear over the years.
I whipped out the fabulous Elmer's Wood Filler (the best one I've used). It dried in 45 minutes for shallow areas. I filled the edges around the table and the marks in the center of the table. It didn't come out as smoothly as I hoped the first time. Or the second time. The third time worked a bit better.
Here is the finished product after bringing a chair to Home Depot and having them color match the paint. Yes, I did wheel around a shopping cart with one of those chairs. :)
The chairs were pretty beat up orginally so I recoated all of them and then did some slight distressing to make them look closer to what they looked like when they were bought new.
Check out my Craigslist post for this item if you are interested in purchasing it!
In case you didn't see my makeover yesterday then check out this dresser I'm selling too.
