Revived flip top pine table

Picked up an old long leaf pine table that was going to the trash. Thanks to the trend nowadays that people opt for new Ikea furniture with flimsy material but new design, a lot of old furniture going to trash just merely because it looks outdated. I am always glad when I stumble into rare opportunities like this.

Took me a couple hours of sanding and repairing on this old flip top table. It came with this old maroon red paint that had many spots scraped off. Joints were loose and top was no longer flat due to seasoned use and improper care.

Unfortunately I forgot to take a before picture but I think the after result looks quite rewarding.

Already a coat of white powder on top from the brutal winter
