If only this 1960's Dough Boy Table could talk and tell the stories it has seen and heard. At one point these types of tables were used for storing flour and rising dough for daily bread-making. This table is made of solid maple.
First, this table was stripped, sanded, are and completely taken apart. The old wood stain was removed from the legs as well as the interior portion of the table. Next, all the hardware was cleaned bringing it back to life. The table was painted using two different Annie Sloan Chalk Paint colors. The legs and the interior portion are stained with Varathane's Walnut wood stain. The entire piece including the chalk painted areas are sealed with Varathane's matte polyurethane, which will not yellow over time and protect the piece from fingerprints and daily use. The original hardware was salvaged and put back on the table. I feel very fortunate to be given the opportunity to restore such an important historic piece of furniture. This one-of-a-kind Dough Boy Table along with the wood stain and combined chalk fit perfectly with Swirl's Furniture Collection.
