Spool Top Tables

Just wanted to do a quick post on a set of tables I put together recently. I am in love with these cool tables! I love the industrial look and I think these tables fit the bill.

I bought a few spool tops for projects but didn’t really have a plan for them. Then these amazing vintage table legs were up for sale and I knew right away they would be perfect for my spool tops. So I sanded them down to remove the rough edges and removed some of the screws that were sticking out. I decided to stain them to give them a more finished look. The wood soaked up the stain. I’m glad I decided on a light color stain so the stamps on these still showed through. I sealed them with several coats of polyurethane.

 

I wasn’t sure how to attach the legs so I asked my husband to help me with this. He bought some long heavy duty screws and bolts and attached them through the holes already in the base tops of the legs. We added a few finishing nails to make them sturdy.

I thought long and hard about painting the legs, but in the end I couldn’t paint over the amazing original chippy paint. Once the legs were on I was glad I’d left them in their original state.

I love the uniqueness of these tables! Such a fun conversation piece to add to any room!

Hope this inspires your creative side 😃 Tell me what you think of this project! I would love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks for checking out my latest post. Hope you will stop by again!

Cindy 😊
