Unfinished Project Overload…….

Party preparations have made me aware of how many unfinished projects there are sitting around…. that and the delivery of the parts I intend to turn into a couple of coffee tables this morning, that took up the only remaining clear space in my work area….

I bought two of these old primary school tables, and three early 1900s oak cross brace doors to use as tops… Probably a few days work, the table legs need to be shortened to make them coffee table height, and the doors need to be sanded and maybe re-braced… Or maybe I will extend the legs on one to make a desk?….

The old hospital bed tray is also still waiting for some inspiration, TV stand? Bookcase? Just not sure yet…

I know what needs to be done with this lot…. I am not in a paint stripper mood though… The chair frames need to be stripped back to raw iron… the seats then need to be half sanded back to get that worn , ten layers of paint and some wood look… The table base needs stripping, that bottom panel replaced, and the top will be replaced with reclaimed oak door, square I think…

And that is just the stuff that is not stacked in the shed…. Luckily I am in a productive mood 🙂 Now if I could just decided where to start?
