I knew Ryan could build the top but what was he gonna do whittle me some wooden pedestal legs?
The answer to that is NO. So what would any good bargain shopper do? I took to Craigslist on a mission to find an old table that had some really cool pedestals that could serve as the base for the wonderful-ness that would be Ryan's creation. Thennn I stumbled upon a table with 2 great pedestals and 5 chairs. As a matter of fact, the whole set was in pretty decent condition. Then in an instant, Ryan was off the hook! I decided that we would just refinish the entire set and re-cover the chairs with new fabric!
So here are some of the before and and during action photos:
There you have the before product! I have some more before pictures of the "lovely" fabric on the seats to share and will upload those later. Next post I will show you how things looked at the next step of priming (foreshadowing: priming = bad idea).
