I was bored at work, and figured I’d try something new on here. I wan’t to post 7 pictures that sum up my week by day. And I’ll attempt (no promises) to do this every week.
So here goes nothing;
Monday- Helped finish Dad’s table and got it to his house.
Tuesday-I worked on Dad’s xmas present. Pretty much finished, just need to clean it up a little.
Wednesday- I met with Britt after she got off work, ran some errands, then finished shopping for my groomsmen gifts. but it was relaxing in a hot house that was the best part of that day.
Thursday-Thanksgiving! on the new table. (ya, I’m a little proud of the table). Dad got chairs the night before. They match pretty darn good.
Friday- Day after thanksgiving xmas decorating! While I was at work, Britt went to Potlatch and helped her mom decorate (yearly tradition). Britt also grabbed our new xmas tree. (so sad that it’s fake….)
Saturday- Darren and Kori hosted thanksgiving. I got off work a little early so B and I could make it on time. Scott and Darren were supervising the turkey while it was frying. So a few of us supervised them…
Sunday- Just another weekend workday….passed the time by watching some Psych.
Dad needed a new dining room table, and we actually had an old butcher’s block table in the garage (that your’s truely cleaned out a few weeks back). So we decided to strip the paint off the old thing, and stain it a natural wood color. So since I’m closer to Lewiston, I took the table to my grandparents in Clarkston so I could work on it after work with some help/advice from my Grandpa Chuck.
Here’s the table (Before). Ugly, I know.
Then we (That’s Grandpa Chuck) took it apart so we could strip everything properly.
Then we started by stripping one of the legs. expsoing some darn good looking wood. It should stain up nicely.
Then we stripped the table top, and threw some pre-stain on it to help seal up some of the cracks, and prep the wood.
Then we started staining. At first I thought it was going to be too dark. but it turned out pretty good. We stained the legs black so we could have black chairs.
After it dried we threw on a clear coat, and started putting it back together. We got all new hardware for it. Bolts/screws/etc.
And here it is in Dad’s house. Just in time for Thanksgiving dinner.
