Nora knew this old blue table had potential written all over it.  What she didn’t know was that potential was actually to make her a crazy person.  But she prevailed. And after hours and hours of sanding and scraping and stripping and scraping and poking it with sharp metal objects, she finally revealed the true beauty of her table, and hopefully is not traumatized of furniture refinishing forever! It was worth it, thanks Nora!

    Hi, Nora here. Thanks gals:)
    Unfortunately, you can’t read about it anywhere, I don’t have a blog. Did you have any specific questions or were you just keen for a few pictures of me losing the plot over it…? 😉

    Oh, and sorry about the horrible pictures taken with my phone, I never expected to post this at the time.

    Nora, this is FABULOUS! What did you use as the new top — did you make it or recycle something else?

    Thanks Laura:)
    that is the actual top that the table came with. It was covered in 3 layers of paint like the rest of the table. Once I had dug out the whimsical detailing on the table top I gave in…and painted the legs white!
    Did I mention that I paid 10 bucks for the table 😉
