This weekend I came across two plain round tables for our "man-cave"
Monday, October 3
On our way back from the rafting trip by Delaware, we stopped by at the antique shop on the way as usual. Saw the chair and bought it for $15 bucks. Later when I decided to work on it, I found a stamp underneath and did some research. Could be over 100 years old.
A photographer friend Katrina Tang used my chair in her photo-shoot.
With this one I got off with a rough start. Originally I wanted to glue wooden cookies all along the curved edge, making it look like a welded bolts. But the ones I ordered online (Awesome source by the way http://www.americanwoodcrafterssupply.com), were too big, soo I changed my plan and glued them to the feet. Even better? Then I had trouble get the paint stick to the laminated top. Had to sand everything off again and start over with a right primer! If anyone ever wants to paint laminate, this is your product! make sure to sand it first and clear coat at the end.

I don't remember since when we had this IKEA bench sitting and rotting outside. The top was completely gone and just when I was about to throw it for firewood, we decided to salvage the poor thing. Brian made a box for tile for it and painted the legs black. Now it serves as a flower stand or just an extra table to rest your glass on the porch :)
