Before and After – Reclaiming an Antique Table

Posted by Dana

Whew, what an undertaking!

My husband confiscated an old antique table that was going to the trash by someone who no longer wanted it.

And I am so glad he did!

This is the table before I decided to reclaim it.  I brought in from the garage to see how it would look in my kitchen.

I dressed it up a bit on top and turns out it looked pretty good.

The drawer isn’t missing, it was just MIA when I took this picture.


So, I set out with stripper in hand to remove all the old paint.

I got way more than I bargained for.  Little did I know that I would have to remove three coats of paint, all different colors.

I removed a green color, cream color and then a royal blue color.

I was an all day job but well worth the end result.

And here it is ……


I painted the table the same color as my wall under my cabinets.
