The Walker Dining Table - Custom Refinish Before & After

Before This table was a custom refinish and made for a great transformation. It came to us two toned with a black base. Our client asked it to be finished in a slightly creamy white with light distressing.

After
The pictures were a bit dark due to the summer storm that hit early Friday evening. The wind was a blowing and blowing. I thought for sure we would see rain but as it turns out it was just a wind storm with lots of cloud cover. You can almost see the dancing trees out the window.
This table has beautiful chunky legs with several levels of detail.
There are two small drawers on each side which gives it a unique look. We replaced the wood knobs with flat black knobs which really pop against the creamy white finish. Our client will encircle her table with black chairs which will match the new hardware. She also has a new beautiful red buffet with the same knobs.
This table almost looks like it belongs to us! It fits quite nicely with our chairs and hutch.
However, we hope our client is happy with her table and hopes she has many happy dinners and family parties around it!

Up next we are working on a dresser and nightstand. It is super chunky and we are doing it in our vintage white. And we all know how I feel about white. I kinda like it.

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

The table turned out great! Love those rooster measuring spoons and can't help but wonder why no one ever called my chunky legs "beautiful":@)
