Kitchen Table Redo

I am so excited to finally have this table done and in the house, and so is my husband as it is finally out of the garage. 
I originally was going to build a table but happened to come across this one.  It was a homemade piece that was built to last and we all know with three boys in the house that is exactly what I needed.  

The only thing I wasn't loving was the color, I am really not a fan of the yellow stain.  With the dark hardwood floors I wanted to keep it light so the base was painted white and the top was given a coat of stain and 5 topcoats to insure for maximum defense against little monkeys.


This table also has two leafs which I love, we won't use them very often but it will be nice for family dinners at our house.  


My hopes are to add benches to the sides of the table to allow more space for moving around the table.  

As for the rest of the house renovations they are coming along more slowly than I would like but little by little I am adding new pieces and hoping to starting painting the kitchen cabinets soon.

This is an amazing table! What a find! The finish is gorgeous and looks like it will really stand the test of time. My dining room table expands, too, and I love it for Thanksgiving and other holidays when family visits. Your projects and renovations remind me of me when I was young and my kiddos were little. I vaguely recall having that much energy. LOL! Have a great week!
