Drum roll please, presenting our new dinning room table

*This project was done about a year ago but I just realized that I never posted.

I was going to get my parent's dinning room table when they moved. I just needed the table, but then my brother needed a table and chairs and they all happened to match. And there was this other table. It had water damage on the top I sanded some and realized that it would sand out. It was the legs that really sold me.

These are the legs mid sand. 

I had been working on this little by little for months. I am not very good at staining and it makes me nervous so I was procrastinating a little a lot. So it sat in the garage. Waiting for enough coats of stain for it to match the entertainment center since it is open concept. When we went up to the Miller's for the weekend we brought it up and the boys worked on it, well they started over on it.

The way that I had been staining it had not been right so they sanded it off and started over... :(

Then it really started to look good. 

And now the finished product:

 I still love the detail under the table top

But the top...

That star burst design.

To see the process on the chairs...
