These tables were offered to me as a “fixer-up” project. The styling on them is great and they are good quality. The only problem is that Fido used them as a chew toy. The corners on both tables were badly chewed. I knew I could make them look good as new, so they came home with me!
I started by using Smooth-On Free Form Sculpt Epoxy Dough. I prepared the epoxy and applied it to the corners that were damaged. I tried to generally smooth it out, but didn’t worry too much about being perfect since this material is sandable once it has cured. After 24 hours I went back in with my sander and reshaped the edges to their original undamaged shape. (Always use a mask when sanding epoxy material). Since the epoxy is not stainable, I chose to paint the entire table in Benjamin Moore’s Hale Navy. I protected it with a layer of General Finishes Flat Out Flat Topcoat. Adding some cute branch shaped drawer pulls painted in Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze finished the look.
Now the tables are ready for a new life!
Hold my wine, I’ve got this…
