Kitchen table redo

I was lucky enough to win this table and 4 chairs for $13.00 at an online auction. Evidently someone started this project and never finished. Through some research I learned it was about 100 years old. Boy, they don't build furniture like they used to. This monster weighed a ton.
So thanks to my sister for helping me pick it up, and to the guy from the auction house for helping to load it.

Here's what I started with:

And here is what I ended up with:

I wanted a farmhouse country chic look. 
I am pleased with the outcome. It will take
my husband some time to adjust to it.

I did two chairs blue and the other two green.
I like a little color! Distressed the chairs with sanding.


Some light distressing on the base of the table,
 more on the chairs. 

Products used are listed on my Facebook page.
 
Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

Hull Pottery Drip Brown Deviled Egg platter

I came across a great auction a couple of weeks ago, and bought several boxes of pottery, china and glassware. There were several boxes in the lot with what I was after that day. So I have had the fun job of going through the boxes a little at a time. So I will post some of my finds here and there.
 
This was one of the first things I pulled out, and immediately stuck it in my hutch and thought UGH, that is ugly, I will probably just have to through it away. Well, a few days later I got it out and starting researching it.  I about fell out of my chair to see that it was actually very collectible.  Right now people are really liking the drip brown stuff.  Several companies beside Hull manufactured this type of design.

 
The deviled egg plate with the rooster seems to be one of the more desirable pieces right now, selling from $30.00-$70.00 depending on the condition.
If you are interested in bidding on this please stop by and check it out HERE.
 
Or search for me on ebay under seller name antq.freak
 
Have a great day,
