SA Finds II

So, yesterday I also bought s couple tables to redo... and here they are:










Yes there's a hole in the caning in the one, there's nothing I can do about that.
And the legs are a bit loose, those will get glued up, and I think I might put at least a coat of matte spray poly on the caning to give it some 'hold'?  Bad idea?

I sanded them, and finished sanding the dining chairs [also caned, what's that about?] that I picked up before it started raining....









I already liked them better with some sanding!  

I plan to make them antique white, with some distressing.  I got one coat of paint on, but the bugs were biting and my kid wanted me to ride bikes with him... and now I have to wash off the bug spray- BLECH!

Forgot to mention, grand total for these two tables?  $25!


Progress




That painting on the fruit just peeled off once wet, so I'm glad I removed it before it clogged up my dishwasher or otherwise disappointed.







Turned legs.  I love 'em, but they are so annoying to paint!!!  These tables are obviously going to take some time... I'm just praying the rain holds off so I can get them done.

I'm a bit lost in your vision right now, so I'm just going to wait and see your ideas unfold.
Hugs!

I also hate word verification. Could you consider turning it off.
