Reclaimed Table Project Update

So I had the day off Monday, so after running my errands, I worked on my upcycled table. Remember how we'd turned an old solid wood door into a table for our porch? Well, it's been sitting on my porch, and I've been wanting to do some more work on it. I sanded and sanded (by hand) and then I got out the tin of Butcher's Wax to give it a good seal.
     "Wax on. Wax off. Very good, Daniel-san," 
     "Thanks, Mr. Miyagi. I couldn't have done it without you."
I only got the top done, along with the front edges of the base... 





I know it doesn't look that much better, but believe me, it is! The color deepened to a warm brown, which I am really liking. The feel is so smooth now, and it's got protection against the weather. Lucky thing, too... I woke up this morning to the sound of rain. It was so sunny and beautiful yesterday! I wish I had finished the entire table while it was still nice out, but my arms and back are saying, "Glad you stopped when you did!" Yeah, I'm a bundle of sore muscles... but as I also have today off, I can relax. Today my plan is to start packing for my trip... I leave on Saturday! Eeek! And to also get another blog post ready for y'all. I went on a very interesting nature walk yesterday, too, after K got home, and want to share those pictures with you, as well.
