Table - Queen Anne Legs Chalk/Clay painted, Top Restored Somewhat

There have been great examples of tables with painted legs, original tops, on tables showing up in blogs recently.



My Queen Anne dining table has seen better years. It was 'new to me' about 25 years ago and it was old then. Bought it from a lovely couple who were selling at the McFearson Antiques Show in Burnaby. Turned out they lived about 10 blocks away from us and delivered the table (and invited us to their Christmas party in their vintage reno'd home).

I couldn't find a photo of the table 'before' when it was in our very small dining room (until the 'kitchen reno').

It was in active use until 2007 when we renovated our dining room/kitchen and made them into one room and changed out the tables.



Since then it has been moved around various rooms in our house and just never found another good place to land. I stored it in the shed for a year but got worried about 'damp'. Brought the base inside in late September. Painted the frame and legs with Simply White (CeCeCaldwell), 2 to 3 coats, and finished with Minwax - Polycrylic.



Eased the 3 table top pieces from their tight storage in the shed (they are solid mahogany and heavy) and brought them back into the house. This four piece table has 2 leaves, the main top and leg section.


For old times sake I dressed the table for dinner, took lots of pictures. It still needs a final polish. We did use this table one more time for Thanksgiving Dinner on the 14th this month (and I forgot to take a picture). It will be going to a new home.




Thanks for visiting.

  1. Nice job on redoing the table it is hard to let things go but a good feeling when a new home is found. Time does fly and change is good. Have a happy day and take care.

  5. Joy ... I agree with Rob ... I often think of things that I have sold and some; I wish I had back, but not something I should be doing. Changes are good and just move on. However, that is a beautiful table and looks so pretty with the natural top. Paint on legs can always be changed to meet the next person's decor.
    Happy Fall.

  6. That really revived the old table, Joy! I have one that's the opposite. It's an oak occasional table. The legs are in the original finish but the top was badly "antiqued." We'll strip it to see what's under that bad finish, and then go from there.

  17. Table setting is pretty. In the time you've had that table, I must have gone through 2-3 Ikea in 5 years. Trust me. Ikea furniture isn't my choice. Take care Joy!
