Drop Leaf Table Makeover

OK, so I don't get any points for a creative title on this post.  I just don't have the creative juices flowing right now.  This table was another makeover for a friend.  My friend inherited this table from a relative.  It was in pretty sad shape, as it had been out in a storage shed.  She pretty much gave me free reign on this one. 

It had good "bones", but needed some TLC

My hubby had to help with some fixes first........

This leg was cracked almost off.  He had to glue and screw it for it to withstand the stress.

Stripping and sanding was next.  My sweetie did that for me too!

I tried a combination stain and poly by Minwax.  I picked this up on the cheap at an estate sale and thought I'd give it a try.  It was pretty nice to get both steps done in one.  

Please ignore my messy garage!

After I finished with the stain, I turned the table upside down to paint the rest..........
Good ole ASCP Old White

And now for the final result.........

My friend was pretty happy with her new and improved table.  What do you think?  I'd love to hear from you!

Thanks for stopping by!
