Vintage Kitchen Table with Turquoise Legs


I picked up this vintage, round table the same time as the hutch I recently repainted. It is a well-built table and it is a great size for a small kitchen or dining area.


The table was in excellent condition and very sturdy, but the orange finish made it look outdated.


The first thing I did was remove the existing finish from the table top with an electric palm sander.  It took quite a bit of sanding to get through the shiny layer on top, but once I did, the flawless wood underneath was revealed.


I mixed ebony and dark walnut Minwax stains to get a nice, deep chocolate stain for the top.  To protect the top, I applied one coat of satin polyurethane.


I painted the table base and legs turquoise for a pretty contrast with the dark chocolate top.


I used a rag to apply Fiddes & Sons dark wax (rugger brown) mixed with clear wax over the turquoise paint to give it an aged look.


I paired the table with my stenciled slipcover parson chairs.


Here is a shot of the table and the back room of Loot, from this past weekend at our sale.

Very nice! And so much fun. Now if only my husband would let me paint the wood furniture in our house, alas he is a woodworker and likes everything natural.

Your shop space is lovely! Good luck and many sales to you.

Wow, this turned out stunning...I love how the dark stained top compliments the turquoise legs so well. I would love to know what color/maker of the paint was!

I'm loving this! It turned out so well. And Turquoise is my favorite color. The vignette you created in the corner there is also too cute.
