I'm back at it again with triangles!!! I can't help it, I love them! I found this cute table a month or two ago and finally worked up the nerve to redo the tabletop in a way I've been dreaming about for months!!!!
I already knew what I was doing to the top, but I was undecided on the base. I thought about painting it, but then I sanded off the dark stain and was left with some beautiful wood tones.
We worked on the tabletop and I sealed it all with polycrylic and this is how the table looks now:
I seriously love it so much!!!!!!!!!! I love the light colored legs with the darker aprons of the table paired with the yardsticks and just the perfect pops of color. It all just works so well together!!
I didn't do a thing to the wood after sanding it. I loved the color as is, and the polycrylic brought out all the great grain.
I really wanted to use reclaimed wood for the top, but I'm having a hard time finding exactly what I have in mind. Yardsticks were the next best thing.
I cannot wait to try other patterns and different material! I have so many ideas swirling right now! I just wish I had the time needed to make more of these types of tables more often. This was really fun to work on and I actually was involved in the process. Usually Nate does all the woodworking around here, but I helped with the measuring and even operated the nail gun!
I'll be dropping this guy off at my booth soon. I know I say this a lot, but this is going to be a hard one to part with.
