My backyard makeover is coming along, and my latest project has been giving my Rustic Farmhouse Table a makeover. The best part of this makeover was how EASY it was and how quickly it took!
I built this table almost a year ago, read all about that here.
Of course I never got around to sealing the table, but I guess having a baby is a good excuse for the delay! Well, after a year sitting in the sun it was due for a much needed makeover. Not to mention it kinda became a work table too.
You can see all the damage I did with these before pics.
So here’s how I refinished my Farmhouse table.
Step 2 // I sanded down the entire top with 120 grit sandpaper. The legs were not as bad so I didn’t bother sanding.
Step 3 // I cleaned and dusted the entire table.
Step 4 // Next I prepped my HomeRight Finish Max Sprayer by adding the stain.
Step 5 // Then I started spraying! I started with the top and sprayed each piece of wood one at a time, then I came back and lightly wiped the wood to make sure the excess stain was well blended. Then, I moved to the legs and base. The entire thing took maybe 10 minutes to spray!
Step 6 // I let the stain dry overnight, but the transformation was already looking so much better!
Step 7 // The next day I prepped the spray gun with the poly sealer.
Step 8 // Finally, I added the 2 coats of poly. Each coat took only 10 minutes and I used a foam brush to clean up any excess poly that built up when I sprayed. I also allowed 2 hours between coats.
Here’s the finished result!
I can’t wait to finally enjoy this table as it was meant to be. The Finish Max Sprayer is my new best friend! I’ve never used a spray gun for stain, and now I know I’ve been missing out. I can’t believe how easy it is to use and how quickly it got the job done. I think when I made this table a year ago, it took me a couple hours to stain it. But using the sprayer makes those hard to get areas no problem.
