Cottage Table Makeover

I have been wanting to make this table over for a while.  It is a little tile top cottage style table bought in the early 90's.  Still stuck in the early 90's, it needed a makeover.  I had originally thought I would paint the legs but that just wasn't enough of a change.  

 I have always wanted a plank table.  I was in the shed the other day trying to imagine some leftover lumber turned into a plank table.  But, then I realized if I removed the top of the tile table I would have the base for my plank top table.  So we removed about a dozen screws and the tile top.  Then we placed two pine panels in their place and I had my plank table.  

 Here the top is stained. I used a walnut stain.

 I roughed up the legs even more than the kids have with the orbital sander.  

Wanting to make the wear more pronounced, I glazed the legs to age them with Valspar glaze in mocha.

Here is the finished table.  I will work on the chairs next.

Just look at the plank goodness!

I just found your blog. I have a similar table and REEEEALLY want to copy you. Did you seal the table with anything? I have a lot of kids and this will get heavy heavy use. Just wondering if it's hard to keep clean.

Emily @ Finding My Aloha said...

Wow! I am so glad you joined my party. Your table turned out great. I love seeing something that good, useful pieces given a fresh new look. You hit a home run with this one. It looks so much better. Those tile tables used to be all the rage. Several of my friends had them and I thought they were wonderful. And now they just seem dated. You made the re-do look so easy.

Korrie@RedHenHome said...

Beautiful! This turned out great.

Honeydew Productions said...

Christa @ Stories of a House said...

Oh my goodness! I saw this on MMS and can't believe what you did with this table. I am bookmarking it! Wow, just wow.

What a beautiful transformation!

Brianne Sherwood said...

What exact brand and color stain did you use? I want to use that on my table! It's really pretty.

Sherry said...

The top is stained with a walnut stain.

Sherry said...

Minwax Special walnut 224. I bought it in 2010. They should still sell it.
Sherry

Brianne Sherwood said...

Thank you! I actually was looking at that one!

Stacy R Sweet said...

I want to do this to my tile top dining table. Can I get more info on how you did the top? You said you used two panels. Two panels of what? The pictures look like its all one piece.

Stacy R Sweet said...

I want to redo my tile top too. You say you used two panels but the pics look like the top is all one piece. Can you explain a little more about how you did the top and what wood you used?

The Charm of Home said...

Stacy,
The two pieces of pine are 20 inches wide x 48 inches wide. We bought them already cut and unfinished at Lowes.
