Repurpose Antique Furniture - 1800's Bakers Table

I had a client reach out to me to repurpose her antique baker's table! It was being used for an entryway table. Being something that's the first thing you see when you walk into a house, it needed some updating, while maintaining its original beauty.

Don't let the landfills win! This antique piece just needed someone to find the love and beauty.


Sanding antique furniture you need to be careful, with a piece as old as this one the wood they use is already a soft wood, after years and years of aging its even softer!



I sprayed this piece even though i prefer to hand paint because of the detail and the spindle legs. its VERY difficult to get a good finish by hand painting spindles.

Looking back on this piece I would recommend to anyone to try to reuse what furniture they have and repurpose it something new! They don't make furniture like they used to! Antiques are one of a kind no a days.


I would love to answer any questions you have on how to help you repurpose your antique furniture!
