Ethan Allen Side Table: Two Toned Goodness

Sunday, 2 June 2013

We have the most awesome neighborhood around. Tons of kids and  they are truly all great families. I don't think we even have one house that are "those neighbors".

The folks next door to us have given me a few free pieces in the past and this is the latest. Jon brought this over and thought maybe I could do something with it. I almost gave up, but I'm really glad I didn't.

This table had seen better days. It had a drop leaf on both sides, but one no longer had the support, so it just hung there 24/7. I decided to take the leaves off and a friend of mine is going to use them to make vintage signs...I love a good repurpose!

After looking in side the drawer, I saw the "Ethan Allen" stamp and I knew I had to give it my best effort.

After removing the leaves, I sawed off the remaining support and filled the holes. Then I sanded off the original dark finish on the top. I used Cabot water based stain in black..and it didn't turn out black at all, but I love the rusticness (is that a word?) of the wood.

I painted the base a medium gray, distressed and added a feminine pull.

This one will be at the Carver Junk Company sale in June!
