This little table has been in my family for a very long time. In fact for many years it was stored in a little old house in the country that my family used to visit many times when I was a child. Poor thing has been through quite a lot and was starting to really show its age. Rickety and almost broken, I am shocked it didn’t make its way to the burn pile. If you look close enough you will notice that even the maiden adorning the leg has lost an arm. Who knows what happened to it along the way.
Fast forward a few decades it was revealed that my sister grabbed the table and has held on to it for years. She recently asked me if I could modernize it up a bit for her and of course I agreed.
Now it looks like a completely different table.
Because of the poor shape it was in, we decided it was best to paint it. I first took it apart and re-glued and secured all of the joints with carpenter’s glue.

My favorite is Gorilla Wood Glue. It always holds up well and cleans up well for me.
Regardless of the missing arm, it looks amazing, right?
My Knockout Roses are looking pretty amazing as well!
