This week we are studying the letter "F" as in FINALLY FINISHED!!!
In 2013 I began work on my mother's sewing table. She said it had originally been her grandmother's. It had always been pretty beat up, but got even worse in the move here.
I began work at the old house and then we got busy packing and moving. (We've now lived here almost two years.) Before the move I had it all sanded. There was really no choice since the top had a deep scratch.
I quickly took a few pictures of the finished table in my upstairs hallway. They really don't accurately show the shade of blue. It's a little washed out in these pictures. I momentarily thought about lugging the table down the stairs and out into the yard for a photo in natural light, but it's so hot and humid out there today! I also need to tell you that the rug is not dirty. I think it's shadows. After I uploaded these pictures I went back and checked just to be sure.
I had a piece of glass cut for the top. Just an added piece of protection from the cats. The finish on top looked so pretty and I knew I'd be heartbroken if a cat scratched it. Only the first picture has the glass. I took some without it. I'd prefer not to have the glass, but I'd also prefer not to have the top ruined.
I still have to finish the mirror.
I started the table in June of 2013 and finished it a couple of months ago. It's FINALLY FINISHED!!!
Now head over and visit Ms. Jenny at Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent" for a list of this week's Alphabe-Thursday's participants. Thanks for visiting.
