A TALE OF 2 AN OLD WOBBLY STANDS

TWO SMALL TABLES PUT IN THE CORNER AT THE BACK OF MY LOCAL RE-USE STORE  .
WHY? BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN WELL LOVED AND NOW THEY ARE WOBBLY !! 

MOST ARE FEARFUL OF WOBBLY TABLES - EVEN THE PEOPLE WHO SELL THEM 


MY SOLUTION - TAKE THEM HOME AT A VERY INEXPENSIVE PRICE AND ASK MY HUSBAND WHAT TO DO, WHEN ALL MY REPAIRS  HAVE FAILED .

HERE IS WHAT WE DID  
UNSCREWED EVERY PART OF THIS TABLE AND THEN GLUED HER BACK TOGETHER WITH WOOD GLUE. 





REPLACED THE SCREWS 
  &   SAND TO MAKE THE BASE SMOOTH AGAIN

FIRST COAT OF OLD WHITE ASCP

DISTRESS WITH COURSE SAND PAPER 

SECOND COAT OF ASCP 

DISTRESS AGAIN  AND WAX WITH CLEAR ASCP WAX
KINDA CUTE !!
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF MY 2.00  TABLE ??

MY SECOND TABLE PURCHASED FROM  THE CORNER WITH YET AGAIN 4 WOBBLY LEGS 

CUTE , BUT UNWANTED 

BACK TO MY HUSBAND FOR USE OF THIS TOOLS AGAIN 

WOOD GLUE , A BRAD NAILER & COMPRESSOR THIS TIME


ASCP GRAPHITE & OLD OCHRE FOR THE LEGS 


DISTRESS A LITTLE WITH SOME COURSE SAND PAPER
FROM UNWANTED TO A REAL KEEPER
$1.00 FOR THIS LITTLE GEM !!


ENJOY THE LONG WEEKEND ,MY BC FRIENDS , IT IS BC DAY IN CANADA
