My FIRST INDUSTRIAL SAVE!


My husband thought I was CRAZY when I pulled this out of an old barn we were cleaning out......

We unloaded her off the truck and I hosed about 30 years of barn dust off her.....

She had a lot of surface rust, but no major damage.

Transported her to my warehouse and sanded all the rust, then cleaned her off really well with a Non-Toxic mixture of 50/50 vinegar and water and got her ready for her makeover!

I chose 100% Non-Toxic Kristi Kuehl Pure Home Paint in Slate and grabbed my Cling On Brush and went to work.

While the paint was drying, I sanded the reclaimed barn wood I envisioned for her new top!

Placed the boards in to decide which color of the Kristi Kuehl Protective Wood Stain I wanted to use.....but decided I loved their natural color and went with the Non-Toxic Gloss Protective Finish.

Put one one coat of the Ebony Protective Glaze over the Slate and added the Barn Wood Top......

    An old iron table that I have ......I would love to send a picture and get some ideas of what to do with it. My parents had it sitting on their front porch for at least 50 years. It looks like a sewing machine table but I don't think it is.

      Thank you so much! Wasn't sure how to tackle this. I'm not creative or artistic at all. I had thought about having it sand blasted, but wasn't sure. Thanks!

    What was the original use of this table in a barn? Just curious. By the way, great makeover.
