No, this is not a post about a road trip.
Instead, it is about yet another side table!
I've been on a roll lately making tables!!!
I had an antique sewing machine base. As usual, I went back and forth on what to put on it to create the top. My mind starts spinning with all the options so it is hard to decide what to do!
I ended up buying this piece of wood...
I had this 1960 map of the Southeastern United States...
I used ModPodge to adhere the map to the wood...
I screwed the wood onto the sewing machine base and then moved outside for the fun part! Using a belt sander, I went over the map, removing pieces of it in some areas.
I also used the sander to round the corners of the wood.
Next, I used a dark stain to go over the entire table top...
This aged the piece nicely!
I finished it off with a few coats of polyurethane to seal the top.
Now for my problem...
I keep making these tables to sell,
but they look so good in my house that I end up keeping them!
Sell or keep?
I'll let you know which direction I take on that!
