Vintage Queen Anne Table Makeover

As a mama to 6 funtastic kids, nothing makes my heart happier to see them learning and growing and succeeding on their own. If you’ve been with me for long, you know that they are ol’ pros as working on projects of their own. Take this vintage Queen Anne table, for instance. My next to oldest daughter, Miss S, wanted a project piece. Here it is…

At first glance, it’s worn, wiggly, and definitely needing some love. Good thing is, that it’s made of cherry and made by a reputable company, Broyhill. Plus, Miss S is not new to this makeover game. You can see her past projects HERE.

DIY TIME

First, let me just say that I have all the confidence that Miss S can tackle this with all by herself. She’s familiar with tools, and all the things needed to have some DIY fun. Plus, she is one of the most hard-working gals I know. To get going, she uses my orbital sander to take the finish off and see what’s below.

I spy gorgeous cherry! She is excited to see this revival come to life. It’s hard to not let your heart start beating faster when you see something coming to life. Then, per my instruction, I suggest she stain the top and put a topcoat on before addressing the bottom. That way her finish is protected before working on the bottom. In the past, I’ve had oopsies and could scream. ouch.

Miss S chooses to use a favorite Java Gel stain that I’ve used in these past posts. It’s rich in color, easy to use, and so perfect for this style of furniture. After the stain cures, she applies 3 coats of a satin poly to finish it off.

NEXT STEPS

Next, it was time to tackle the bottom. Miss S is after a classic look since the style lends itself to that easily. Because the original stain is a cherry/mahogany color, there is a significant chance that there will be bleed-through (where the stain comes thru the paint). So, in order to remedy that, she uses a stain-blocking primer to seal it all in.

Then, after the primer, she uses two coats of a soft antique white to finish it off. I’m loving the contrast between the top and bottom. Isn’t it so pretty?

THE REVEAL

It’s time to see this ol’ gal come to life again in a new way. Here’s this vintage Queen Anne table in a refreshing style.

As a proud mama, I think Miss S did a phenomenal job reviving and adding style to this classic piece. Obviously, my favorite is the top. That dark wood is gorgeous!

Not only do the legs get me every time, but I’m a sucker for a wood/paint combo. Keeping the wood top really makes you appreciate the craftsmanship. Meanwhile, the paint livens it up to give it a fresh new feel.

    Oh Larissa, I’m so sorry about Teddy! I know a piece of your heart is missing. Our fur babies are so much a part of daily life that their absence strongly felt. I know it’s too soon, but if Teddy could, he’d tell you he’s had the best life any pet could and that hard as it may be, he’d want you to share that love with another. So many animals never know that love, but Teddy sure did!!! He was a lucky boy!! I’m sending you lots of hugs!!! 💕❤️💕 And please tell your daughter what a gorgeous job she did! It looks better than new! 😍

    • Larissa says

      Your words mean much. I still can’t believe he’s gone. I keep thinking he’s right there. So hard to say goodbye.
      I’m also stoked for my daughter. Thank you!

  2. Helen says

    I’m heartbroken over your loss… I’m so sorry. God lends us these beautiful companions for such a short time. I’m certain when you feel him, he’s there. Love like that doesn’t just disappear, it lives forever in our hearts.

    • Larissa says

      It sure does. We definitely were blessed with so many good years with him. Thank you, Helen.

  3. Karen Cofield says

    Larissa, I’m so sorry about the loss of your dog. I had to put my cat down a few years ago.. I struggled with the decision. I didn’t want to let him go, but he was suffering. It broke my heart, but it was what was best for him. My heart goes out to you ❤️
    On a brighter note…your daughter did a beautiful job on the Queen Anne table! It’s clear she inherited her mother’s talent and that you have taught her well!

    • Larissa says

      Thank you dearly, Karen. It sure is so hard. What a dear sweetie he was for so many years.
      And, thank you for the love. She sold it within an hour. Yay! Miss S needs another project. 😀

  4. Rebecca - Knoxville, TN says

    Sorry about your sweet Teddy. Saying goodbye is one of the hardest things in life.

    On another note, Ms. S did a fabulous job on the table! You must be very proud.

    Hope summer has arrived for you

    • Larissa says

      It sure is. I don’t know how God gave up His only Son. 🙁

      Thank you so much for the love. Yes, summer in full swing…until mid 60’s by the end of the week. haha!

  5. Mary Loveland says

    The table looks lovely and I agree the top is beautiful! Proud Mama, talented daughter!

    Awe, I’m so sorry to hear about your beloved Teddy. It’s so hard saying goodbye to our fur children. Sending hugs to you and your family from Canada. xo Miss S did an amazing job on this table makeover. I have no doubt it’ll sell quickly. Happy belated birthday to Miss S, you are very talented like your Mama!

    • Larissa says

      You are so sweet, Marie. Thank you for the love and hugs.
      And, yes, so proud of Miss S. The table sold within the first hour of listing and is already on it’s way. Yahoo!

    I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved Teddy! 🙁
    Miss S did a great job on the table. I just love the 2 tone look. It shows off the beauty of the wood while also making it look modern.

    • Larissa says

      Thank you on both accounts, Melva. I’m excited for my daughter and seeing her learn and grow.

  9. Terri Hughes says

    So sorry to hear about your little Teddy passing. I feel your pain, we lost our little dog Scruffy a few months ago. They are just like family. Your daughter did a beautiful job on this table. I love it. Following in her mother’s footstep. Very nice!

    • Larissa says

      Oh…I’m so sorry. Yes, they are family and sometimes even more understanding than humans. 🙂
      Thank you for the love on her work, Terri. Hugs!
