Simply gorgeous kitchen table make-over!

Shes done .. shes gorgeous  ... shes everything I hoped she would be and then some! 


Lets refresh our memory of what she looked like when she came to live with me shall we?


Yuck!  No wonder she was just $25.00!

I sanded the top.

Then stained it a rich dark walnut.

Painted all the wood a nice bright shiny white.

Then I recovered the chairs in this beautiful outdoor fabric!  No pictures .. whoops!   I choose outdoor fabric because its sort of shiny and wipe-able, great for a kitchen!

And here she is!







Price breakdown - 
$25 for the table, benches and chairs at a yard sale
$18 for fabric
$16 stain and polyurethane
$70 primer, new paint brushes, spray paint
$0 white glossy paint, already owned
= $129

Other then the table and fabric .. I can use all the supplies over again on other projects .. but I figured the cost into this project.  The purdy paint brushes were not cheap .. but they are pretty amazing.

I wanted to sell the table ... because really I cant use it, its to small.  But since I loved it soooooooo much I planned on pricing it high .. so maybe it would not sell and maybe I could make room for it in my house! I listed it for $300 on Craigs List Buffalo.  And my girlfriend called me right away and said .. WAY under priced!  She insisted I raise the price to at least $500!  People can always offer less, and since I was not desperate for the money I could sit on it a while (no pun intended!).  She had some good points.  So I edited my listing to say $500. And it sold, that day, for $500 bucks. Maybe I should offer her a finders fee??

$500 selling price
-$129 in supplies
= $371 profit

Are you kidding me?!?!  I am super excited to be sticking that money right back into my "house fun money" Dave Ramsey envelope!  Maybe I will pick up these gorgeous broken glass looking lamps from Target I have been eyeballing for weeks for our bedroom makeover!

My table was featured at The Dedicated House and Crafts a la mode!
