Stanley Table - Finished!!!

I'm thrilled!  I got the table refinishing done!  I think it looks great--better than I expected! It was a lot of work, but so worth it!

Oh yeah and before!

Vintage Cat Cookie Jar

I stumbled across this on ebay.  I wasn't looking at cookie jars, but this turned up in a search and I showed it to my husband--he did the "oh-ah" and gave me that look.   His birthday was around the corner, so I got it for him.  We both love these cute vintage characters.

Stanley Table - Progress

Moving along on the base of the table. After much thought, I decided not to re-stain it.  Here it is after a few coats of Danish oil.  It is supposed to be nice and dry this weekend--I plan to sand the last two side pieces and drawer front.
