|Early this year I cleaned out a storage building I had for over 20 years. It contained Mother's kitchen table that I refinished, a set of 1940's Heyward Wakefield rattan furniture and Grandmother's library table. Amazingly, these items stood the test of being in storage for many years!|
|This table was very wobbly. It appeared as though someone had worked on it before. I can't believe I forgot to take photos of everything we had to do to this table! It had to glued, clamped, braced and sanded underneath to return it's stability. I chose not to refinish it, but wipe it down with Restore-A-Finish. I like to keep the dings; they tell a story.|
As you can see the table is quite large (and heavy). I had to remove another table and chair from this area to fit it into our home office.
|The table is Mahogany and in the Empire style. It has such a special meaning because it was in the parlor in my Grandparent's 1830 farmhouse. I'm thrilled to have it in our home now and look forward to passing it down in our family.|
Thank you for stopping by today!
