Re: Huge dining table transformation

What a lovely finish you've achieved there, @LorenaDIYS! The lighter colour really does suit the table and your other decor much better. I trust you're proud of the results.

 

Any idea what type of timber the table is made from?

 

Well done, and I look forward to your next project.

Hi @LorenaDIYS

 

What a beautiful transformation, I love that timber finish on your table. That Cabot's Acorn stain really brought out the timber grain on your table. How long did the entire project take to finish? I love that you preserved that dark shadow line from the old table,

Re: Huge dining table transformation

Hi Eric , I started the project in October  2021 & finished in March 2022.

this project took me the longest . 
My other  projects didn’t take as long as they were completed throughout lockdown. 
The dining table really exhausted me , it was real

Challenging  but so worth it. 
I’m also happy I kept the shahid line . Thanks for your comment 😊
