Another busy day, but I'm so excited to share with you another recent project for my own house. This adorable kid's table and chairs. Right now there are only two chairs, but I'm on the look-out for another set of two different styled wood chairs to go with it. I love, love, love the way it turned out. I'm just so excited about this one! Most of the time I'm working on projects to sell, so I'm especially excited when I get time to work on something for our house.
You may remember this table from a while back. I refinished this one about a year and half ago. It was great for being a military family because it all broke down flat for moving, and let me assure you, we do our fair share of moving. However, it wasn't solid wood. And, while I did like it, it always bugged me because I'm such a fan of solid wood.
Followed by staining. Oh, and after I stained them, I put a coat of polyurethane on them. This was a Sunday morning. Then, we had 100% humidity (lovely Florida) for the next week. On Wednesday they were still sticky. Really sticky. I think they were getting stickier. I was scared. I ignored them until the sun came out. Finally, it wasn't until the next Saturday that we had sunshine again. I set them outside in the sun, crossing my fingers, and praying they would cure. Inside I assumed they were past the point of return. But thankfully the sunshine came through for me. After a few hours, they cured and were ready for another coat of poly.
