Ta-da! The Farm Table is Finished!

Well, the pressing question today is, will we call this year twenty-thirteen or two-thousand-thirteen? Enquiring minds want to know!

I finished resurfacing the top of this antique farm table over the weekend, thanks to my friends at Min-Wax and hours of sanding with my new power sander!

It was the first time I had used the Min-Wax Polyacrylic product.

While the product was easy to work with and will provide good protection for the table, I’ve grown to love a simple wax finish.

I guess I could always sand off the Polyacrylic, but I’ll probably just leave well enough alone!

By the way, who all’s going to Haven in Atlanta this summer? I see that they just announced the dates, August 1-3! Could they have found a hotter month to be in Atlanta? I don’t think so, but, it’s sure to be fun!

    • Hi there,
      My new sander is a dewalt. The orbital sander and standard sander both Hook up to my shop vacuum. It really cuts down on the dust in my work area!
      Thanks for being here and happy new year to you too!

  5. Are you going to Haven this year? If you are, I’m going also. Let me know.

    • Hi sweetness,
      I’m afraid not. I’d love to go, but I have to focus on the shop right now. I’m no longer foot loose, as I was. So far, that’s ok. You know, you and your hubs have a place to stay, should you come out west!
