I know I promised to give you the Crate and Barrel table transformation but I had a minor set back with the my health but I'm fine and back in business.... so here it is:

So as I stated in my past post regarding "The Goodwill Store" I purchased this table for $30......Go me Go me!!!!! I had been searching for months for the perfect kitchen table and a pedestal table was the perfect fit but a new table was not in the budget. We searched every where for a pedestal table and came up short, so as soon as the opportunity presented itself we jumped on it and haven't looked back. With all used things you have make it your own, this diamond in the ruff needed a little polishing and I was the right person to do just that...... To get started you will need the following to get started:

- Hand sander
-Low grid sandpaper
-(2) Two cans of the Rustoleum Spray Paint Flat or Stainer (Depending on what your trying to do)
-(Optional) A Old Glass Table Top.  Measure to make sure it will fit the new wooden table top without over hang.

Start by giving the table a even rub down to get the finish off allowing the stain or paint to adhere. Once your done with that dust away any dust left behind. Shake the Spray Paint in this case very well.....give the table a even spray down make current to do this in a well ventilated space such as outside and OPPS!!!!!! on a drop cloth.

after your done spraying the table go over it again or as many times as needed to cover the entire item. Let completely dry before moving it inside.

now for some people this may not be necessary, but my kids do everything at the kitchen table eat, homework, study, craft projects etc. so I decided to recycle my old glass table top and stoppers by simply placing it on top of the new wooden table for both style and everyday function. You have yourself a kitchen table for under $40.00



THE BREAK DOWN:

1 GENTLY USED CRATE AND BARREL TABLE- $30
2 CANS OF SPRAY PAINT-$6.00

TOTAL= $36.00
