Farmhouse Table

I shared this table a few weeks ago. We picked it up on our way back from ice cream one warm summer evening (sigh, already missing summer). It was obviously an outdoor table from the musty smell and damp top but I brought it home anyway.

My son was (is) positive I also brought home all sorts of spiders with it but all I could see was a cute table in need of a little TLC.

I used a wire brush to scrubbed off all the loose paint (there was a lot).  I then sanded the rough spots and much to my son's delight, I vacuumed the underside of it to remove the spider webs.  I also punched a few nails in the top boards. Being outside caused the boards to warp and the previous nails were no longer useful.

I order Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint Layla's Mint.For some reason I pictured this table painted in minty green.

I had extra Farmhouse White Milk Paintfrom a previous project so I painted the middle panel of the table with that.

I think this table would work nice in a breakfast nook,

or in a big farmhouse kitchen.

I will be selling this table in my Home and Patio Sale next July!
