This table came from a trash bin. Unfortunately I don’t have a before picture, but it did look pretty bad – stained and damp. I painted it with a bit of furniture paint and polished with Walnut oil (another good one to use is linseed – they are much more environmental than synthetic oil and do not rot like other vegetable oils).
I found some boxes in the bin, alongside easel table legs. I put some baking paper to prevent the glue from leaking into the soil, put some compost it and – Tah- Dah! – planted veg and herbs.
I found a stool in a bin next to Mary Immaculate college in Limerick. I painted the legs and made a soft seat with a removable cover. It is a bar/draft table height.
