This naturally beautiful table was created by Jen from Migonis Home with Hurricane legs. What a transformation!
My best friend’s table was in a dire makeover. She and her husband got it when they first got married and it was a hand-me down then. Eight years ago. So now, after moving, entertaining for years on it and having a child (you know how rough kids can be on things!) they figured it was time to give it a little TLC. Enter me and my trusty Country Chic Paints, and a heavy duty electric sander.
The table top that you see here inspired the makeover. The poly was flaking off in certain places and was ensuring that water was getting into the wood.
The legs were a hunter green, which didn’t match anything else in their house, so those needed a good coat of paint. They love bright colors and use Fiesta ware for their dinner set so we decided on Hurricane for the legs that would complement their happy plates and house but not compete.
It took me forever to sand off that polyurethane. Maybe a total of two hours because it had worked it’s way down into every tiny crevice. The legs though, well, that was a different story. This paint is a breeze to work with. It covered beautifully and I was able to easily get places that the factory finish didn't go like in the grooves in the legs.
They wanted an almost natural look for the table top so we went with a golden oak stain by Minwax to match their woodwork. I hope you have fun checking out their fun dinnerware on their new-to-them table.
I'm Jen Migonis and I blog over at Migonis Home about renovating our small Cape (every single room is getting seriously revamped), decorating, food and family. The whole gamut. :) And I love makeovers. Every time I see a good one it makes me giddy. Especially one where someone took some risks or had a really great vision.
