It was overall in a good shape, except one of the feet was partly broken.
See the bottom of the right leg?
I forgot to take a picture but I glued a piece of wood cut into a shape so that it'll fit in there, then I put wood filler around and over it to make the same shape as the rest of the feet.
Now I can't tell which one was broken ;)
I see a lot of people do Union Jack redo on the internet and they do a fantastic job, but I never thought of trying it myself.
But this table had a nice cross pattern on top and I thought it'd be such a waste if I just plainly painted over it.
So I decided to jump on the bandwagon and create my own Union Jack.
I took it all apart and sanded, then put primer on.
Using Frog Tape and painted the pattern.
Also, a good sized chair was given to me by a friend so I refinished the chair in the same color & pattern as well.
This pink colour is something I mixed myself because I didn't have the exact colour I wanted.
I aimed for "strawberry cream" colour.
It is Crimson Red from Premiere(Canadian Tire) and primer(white) from CIL, Natural Living mixed together.
I know, I know, I have to be careful with the floor, but I often get carried away and just go right ahead.
I was very careful and no paint spots on the floor...of course I wouldn't do this if kids were around, I have to set a "good example", you know ;)
I waxed the entire pieces, now they are oh so smooth.
I love the contrast of pink and white color, it's very girly :)
