In-between Christmas celebration, family time and New Year's fun with friends we worked on the dining table plus the shelves and daybed for the basement living room.
After a lot of sanding, we realised the wood is too pretty to be painted.
Instead we decided to oil the table, to keep the beautiful wood texture. The oil has a little bit of white in it. That way the pine won't turn yellow, like it typically does. (Note to self: make note of the name and color code for the oil for future reference.)
The table is done! Very, very happy with it! The shelves for the basement living room will be oiled too; the same as the daybed (see below).
The daybed is almost done. It will be big enough for two grown ups to sleep in; the basement living room will double as guest room in addition to home cinema room.
The daybed and the shelves will be treated with skyggegrå (shadow grey) oil from Trestjerner.
