Lamp Black and Java Drop Leaf Table

About This Post

Is this table magazine-worthy or what!? It was refinished by Susan of Saw Nail and Paint_ of Seattle, WA.Company_. " I spotted this vintage oak draw leaf table at my favorite Goodwill a couple of weeks ago and I thought it would be perfect for my dining room. This table was a steal at just $60. The top had some pretty bad scratches and water stains, but even so, this is one of those rare finds that I could have just used as is. I stripped the old finish off the top, let it dry for a day and then sanded it smooth. I stained it with one coat of General Finishes Java gel stain. This stain is so easy to work with and I really love the warm brown tones it give oak. I then sealed the top with several coats of General Finishes High Performance Topcoat in Satin. I gave the rest of the table 2 coats of General Finishes Milk Paint in Lamp Black. I love this paint and this color so much. It’s definitely one of my favorites, if not THE favorite. I applied two coats, and left areas where the wood tones show through. I normally seal my paint, but I left this as is. I wanted a matte finish and I also want the paint to naturally wear and patina."
