Hey, it's Brady's wife (Patrice). He's going to be mad that I'm posting this, because 1- it's out of order and 2- he likes EVERYTHING to be perfect (and sometimes my wording and punctuation isn't quite up to his standards... haha! and he probably won't like the pictures I post...) BUT, he has been severely neglecting his blog... probably because he has been working on too many projects, collecting old, ugly pallets, and trying to do yard work with a hideously ghetto garden tractor that he was given from my dad. So I decided to take this one into my own hands- fully knowing he'll probably go back and change everything I posted.
ANYWAYS, this is the most recent completed project... My brother found my mom's old Singer Sewing Table in his basement (minus the sewing machine) and he thought I might like to have it. We, of course, forgot to take a before picture. That happens a lot. But it looked just like this one I found online, but a lot more beat up.
Technically this was supposed to be MY project to work on, but since I just had a baby I passed it off to Brady. I absolutely LOVE the retro handles on the drawers and the placement of the legs under the drawers! Brady spent hours sanding it (mostly by hand but he also used a belt sander (?) he got at DI for $10). Then he commenced in his very first staining project- we chose a dark mahogany. The stain isn't perfect but I think it adds to the antique feel. So good job, Brady!
- Belt Sander (?)
- Foam brushes (2)
- Pint of Minwax Polyshades (stain and polyurethane in one... used about half the can)
