I am ashamed to say how long it took me to complete this simple table makeover.
Bought back at the first of this year, I was thinking a quick polish would repair all the finish flaws.
However I was WRONG!
Some chemical had removed the finish around the bottom of the legs.
The Corsican Table would have to be painted.
Why do I call it the Corsican Table?
Because it has its name on the label underneath.
Made in North Carolina for the Loving Furniture Company in Morgantown, West Virginia.
Not wishing to damage the beautiful top, I flipped it over and sanded the apron and legs.
Using Americana Decor Chalky Finish in Carbon.
And this is where I put it in the corner of the living room.
I am ashamed to say it stayed right there until last week.
Finished painting with Carbon.
Applied Howard's Citrus Shield in Dark Oak over the black.
Used MinWax paste - clear - for the top which is real inlay.
Quite the handsome fellow - this Corsican Table.
Ready for a new home at Riverfront Antique Mall
in North Augusta, South Carolina.
I am ashamed to say this is not the only piece half-way completed.
