Antique Farmhouse Table Makeover



I'm sharing another furniture makeover that I did last summer. I refinished this antique farmhouse table right after I finished the Chest Makeover. This makeover I was a little more scared to do because I sooo didn't want to mess it up.


My mom got me this table as a bridal shower present. She found it at the Salvation Army in Hayward for $60! It was in a bit rougher condition, but I gave it some love. We used it as the "Jelly Table" for my wedding (homemade jelly was the wedding favor). I will have to share more about that later...


I had a tough time deciding how I wanted to refinish it. I wasn't sure if I should paint it all white, stain it all dark, or do white legs and a wood top. Do you think I made a good decision?? I suppose I can always change it if I get sick of it...


I realized that I actually thought it had "pretty wood" and didn't want to cover it all with white, however, I still needed some of my beloved white paint.




As you can see it was pretty beat up when I got it...it even had mildew on the top of the table. It came with fold out panels on each side but those were removed to better suit our efficient living situation.

**PLEASE NOTE** the small black dot in the background of these "before" pictures is a rooster! Which is proof that I am, in fact, a country girl despite my current living conditions.



It's actually stamped antique underneath, which I thought was pretty sweet! 




This is underneath the table also. I had never heard of the name, but when I did a quick Google search I realized that my mom got a pretty awesome deal! Even for being a little beat up...
If anyone knows more about "Cushman Colonial Creations" I would be interested in hearing!


Check out her pretty curves!


And her lovely feet!


I sanded the top for so long and there are still little dots of mildew or mold underneath that stain. : (
They are not very noticeable now though. P.S. this picture makes the top look more "orange" than it really is.




Now if I could just find an actual farmhouse to go with my farmhouse table that would be great!

Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings,
Olivia
