Table Trouble

Remember this table that I had such trouble refinishing? It took a lot of hair-pulling to finally get a really nice looking finish.

But the trouble wasn’t over. Here’s what happened just before a potential buyer was supposed to come and look at it.




I picked at one little spot that looked funky.




It’s kinda’ like when you get a really bad sunburn and you can’t stop yourself from picking and peeling all that dead skin.




To be continued….




  1. Ohhh, Nooooohhhh. That is sad. Looking forward to your solution and redo.

    I guess at least it happened before the potential buyer bought it and took it home! I’m sure you will be able to fix it. 🙂

    • Thanks, Stephanie. The “incident” happened just a short time before the appointment. I was praying she would cancel on me, and she did! 🙂

  3. Oh my goodness! That’s horrible – all of that hard work! I know you’ll figure it out though, you’re very creative. Bah, so frustrating.

  4. Your beautiful table reminds me of a vanity I painted! This is horrible! I would have cried!I can’t wait to the final reveal!

  5. Oh no! I could just imagine how scary you must have been to see this happening. I hope everything turned out ok.

  6. Linda Hayes says:

    Oh mooooooooooo!!!
    I “peel” your pain.
    Can’t wait to see how you fix this because I know you will!

    • Ha, very funny! Yes, it’s almost finished (famous last words)!

      • Linda Hayes says:

        Well, that was a typo….it should have been….

        “Oh noooooooo!”

        Unless of course you used milk paint, than I guess the original version is appropriate.

        Next time I will put on glasses before I respond.
