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.
Thanks for visiting.
