a little over a year later…

and i have finished refinishing the dining room table and chairs!!! last summer, my parents came out for a visit, and my mom taught me how to refinish furniture. we started with the dining room table, but couldn’t get to the chairs before they had to leave. i then got a new tv stand and refinished that; and bought a coffee table, and refinished that; and did one of the four dining room chairs, also. this summer, i finished the other three chairs.

i wish i had taken more before and after pictures, and taken more pictures of each step in the process, but it is what it is. here are some of the photos i did take!


About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
