2009 New Year’ Resolution: Finish This Table

bya Gabrielle at 12:27 PM

Phil and I decided that it would be a good idea to finish his old dinning room table over our twleve day vacation.  On the first day of our vacation, we got the top of the table done and just the easy to reach areas on the legs.  A week later, we finally finished the rest of legs.  We were going to start staining yesterday, but it was too freaking windy.  Today being New Year’s Day, we are too tired to do anything and we have to go eat a traditional meal at his parents at 3:00.  Tomorrow we have to go look at some more houses with our real estate agent.  That leaves us with Sunday, our last vacation day, to get anything done.  If Sunday is a good day weather wise, I expect we will only be able to tackle a few legs.  We’ll probably be working on this table for the next several weeks.  I’ll be happy that is just gets done – sometime this year.

Here is a partial before and after picture.  We plan to stain the top of the table light and the legs of the table dark.  When we buy some new chairs, we will do the same to them.

Here is what she looked like before.

Happy New Year’s guys.  Hope you all have a great 2009.  Remember 2012 is only 3 years away.  :)
