grandma’s table

workhardstayhappy.comToday I finally finished a project at the new house! It’s really nice working on things in our own backyard. We are both so grateful for my mom’s generosity with her backyard and house during the last three years, but it is such a nice feeling working on something at your own home. I started this project at my mom’s, and finished it here.

workhardstayhappy.comworkhardstayhappy.comworkhardstayhappy.comI started by taking the whole table and chairs apart. Then I sanded and primed everything.

workhardstayhappy.comworkhardstayhappy.comWe had some trouble deciding what to do with the seats. They have a metal frame, and the seat is actually made from this weird rope-ish material. It’s really awesome, but was really rotten in some spots and hard to paint. We decided to leave the centers as is for now, and maybe once they all rot through we will replace it with wood slats or something fun. We decided to keep all of the seat white, hopefully to not draw attention to the condition of the rope.
