New old table

On my way home the other day I bought a new dinner table. More precisely; I bought an old dinner table. I wasn’t really looking for one but I literally stumbled upon it on the side-walk and  next thing I knew -I’d bought it.

It’s in need of a serious refurbishment but I got it real cheap and after having painted the legs yesterday it already looks great in our dining room. I like how the surface is rough and unpolished but I’m contemplating on removing the blue paint and maybe give it some oil… What do you think?

    cool! i am always wondering where you get all the nice pieces for your home or where you get your inspiration for deco and stuff.

    What a fantastic find! I think stripping off the leftover blue paint and oiling the top would definitely work.

    Det er virkelig flot! Synes du skal beholde det blå, det står rigtig godt til tallerkenerne! Hvis det skal være “pænt” engang imellem kan man jo altid bruge en dug?
    Jeg skal ud og kigge på spisebord idag! Håber jeg finder et der er lige så fint som dit…

    Wow, so jealous at the moment, this table looks so gorgeous. Especially the ornaments on the corners.
    It fits perfectly in your living space!

    Jeg er helt enig med young – behold det blå og læg en dug på, hvis bordet skal være “pænt”.
    Det blå giver bordet personlighed!
