I have had this maple table for a few years now. It was my parents table when they
got married. That would put the table at least fifty years old!
I painted it the same colour as my island a Swedish grey colour.
At first I was going to paint the table white but changed my mind.
I am really liking the greys now.
Naturally I forgot to take a before photo. I found this photo from a few years
back of the table. You don't see all of it but it shows the colour of the wood before.
After my parents had it for many years it got passed on to my brother and his family.
That's where it took a real beating. My brother has three kids and they love hockey
(hope they are not reading this post!) and I swear they played it on this table!!
All the years my parents had it not a scratch could be found but as soon as it
went to my older brother well it got a lot of loving' put into it!!
So it when it passed to me I knew it had to be painted or refinished.
The maple colour was too dated for me so I opted to paint it!
The colour matches perfectly with the dining room chandelier too.
Here's another photo of the island in the same colour...
