I decided to turn this three piece set into a chess table due to its small stature. This table was given to me, a dog named Chuck loved to use it as a chew bone.
I had the table and chairs routed to remove some of most severe damage, then it was time for wood filler and a lot of patience!
Sanding. Just enough to rough up the satin finish.
Chew marks all over the chair legs!
Assembled table and finished painting.
Chairs were next to be painted.
Used POLY- Finish to adhere the printed chess board image.
Cut image to allow for drop leaf sides. Several coats of poly-finish a top the image for durability.
Unfortunately, I was outbid on the chess pieces. So for now, this versatile small table is charming for dinner for two.
Will post pics when I can find the perfectly imperfect chess pieces 😉
Compact, in its simplest form.
- Paint, poly-finish, printed image. (Given to me)
