Before and After: Oak Hall Table

By Gretchen Sawatzki

Some restoration projects find their way to our shop by chance. When our neighbors decided to renovate part of their building, a charming antique hall table and decor from 1920s was uncovered. Like the day it was left, the space had its original wallpaper and furnishings intact.

Salvaged from the space, this antique hall table was structurally sound with a small drawer for knick-knacks. It's obvious that it would clean up nicely. All it needed was a quick strip of the old finish, a good sanding, and fresh finish coat to make it shine. Now it's ready for a new life in a loving home!
