Vintage Pine Dining Table

Vintage pine table. Not sure quite how old this is, but it’s been around a bit 😀 We don’t do before and after photos but I wish I had taken one of this table, the top was a nightmare – it had obviously been covered with something and there was glue and some sort of red gunk all over it. I tried sanding, then I tried chemical stripper, then I tried white spirit and wire wool and then I sanded a whole lot more. I was close to using it for fire wood several times but I thought it might explode with all the chemicals I’d used so I just had to persevere. Possibly due to inhaling too many of said chemicals I didn’t realise that the ‘l’ in cutlery would be almost hidden by the knob, well that’s my excuse anyway….
