I've been working on a Duncan Phyfe double legged table. I bought about 4 years back for I think $20 0r 25 dollars from Goodwill. It was in rough shape and I went back and forth thinking do I sand and re-stain or sand and paint. I decided to paint. It's going to replace the table I've had for about 10 or so years that I was given. Now I would like to find different chairs. I have been looking for the Cane Back Chairs or French ladder chairs. I don't need more than 4. I don't have a large dining area.
The feet on this table are brass. And cleaning them up has been a chore in itself. Three have rust on them and I've been putting Royal Jelly on them to try and restore them. They are taking a bit longer. The other three have cleaned up so well and I am happy with them, it's the rusted ones I am not sure will fair well. I'll just have to keep working on them. I can see the brass coming through, but it's taking it's sweet time.
The above before picture is not my table. I forgot to take the picture. But the table is the same.
So, that's what I've been up to.
