Almost finished dining table

Here is the finished product almost. It just needs one more coat of estapol and I haven't put the extension bits back in as I can't do it on my own without scratching it.

It was $109 for the table inc delivery
$70 for sander, which will be used again
$60 for supplies (stain, varnish etc)

So a very cheap table, but now on the lookout for secondhand chairs that I like, which I can do up to match the table stain. It's not perfect, but I am very happy with it. The colour I used is Wattyl Wood Gel Wenge.


  1. Looks like you're pretty handy! What a fantastic make over you've given your new table! Are you available for small jobs? Hehehe, cant wait to see what chairs you find.

  2. Nice work! Now... what chairs are you going to get!

  3. Thank you everyone. I think I might have found some chairs Andrea, but not sure if I want 4 or 6 chairs. If you are interested it is here on ebay. I would sand stain to match my table...

  4. Wow the before and after is amazing. Well done. Looks great

  5. Love it! Table looks GREAT!
