My kitchen table used to be my parents old table way back when. Growing up it was the kitchen table of countless Jenkins dinners. With a little stain and finish it looks a lot better.
You know your house is old when you have decorative trim that is like mine. See picture below. With the help of my parents and brother we painted the cupboards and added new hard wear from ikea.
After several remodel projects, the kitchen sink (which might I add is shallow, long, and OLD) was tinted red from the remodel, stained and dirty. I purchased one of those tub and sink refurbish kits to do the tub. I was a little worried about how it would turn out so I thought I would test it out on the kitchen sink first. It actually turned out really well. It looks brand new.
