Old Things Need Fixin': A DIY Table (take2)
And the winner was "Paint it White!" So I did. I drug the old table out and started painting it as soon as it was warm enough out side. We still had snow on the ground but it was the perfect temp outside for me!
I'm not a good painter and I'm not patient at ALL. So, I took the old antique-it approach. I know, I know, it was already an antique but because you can tell when I spray paint something that it has been spray painted, I have to hide my mistakes. To do that, I got out my sand paper. Easy enough!
So this was transformed into this...
After every light coat of paint I sanded with a 100 grit sandpaper. On my final coat of paint, I used a 220 grit sandpaper and then sprayed a clear coat over the entire table. This project took most of the day but for me that's better than days and days.
P.S. In response to a question about the wall plaque. The making of that piece is here.
