First, I decided to paint the top of the table white and leave the rest the natural wood color. Later, I would wish I had done the opposite, but only after I had already applied a layer of primer - too late, sucka! So, naturally, I get sooooo excited that I start this project in the doorway between the kitchen and dining room because there's no other possible space in the house that would be more convenient for a project. I find some painter's tape and tape up what I'm not painting. Then, I realize that I should move the table out to the patio, but that I can't get the table out there without taking the legs off.
|I got too excited|
So, I break the painter's tape and remove the legs and leave them in said inconvenient place and head downstairs with the table top. I reapply the painter's tape, spread a tarp over the patio, and set the table down.
|I got skillz with Kilz. You see what I did there?|
|Already looking better with just one primer coat!|
|Oooooo...coats of white paint.....|
|The mistakes I sandpapered out of existence|
To finish, I put it in the middle of my cat fur covered, pukey dining room, and put some fake leaves from Michael's and some pumpkins we got at a nearby pumpkin patch and some candles from our "fake" wedding 4 years ago (don't ask) in the middle to make it look awesome. So, it's an island of awesome amidst a mess, but I just like to peek in on it cause it's so so pretty!
Here's the before:
|A definite "before shot"|
|Small but lovely finished product. The table, obviously, not the rest of the dining room.|
|I love baby pumpkins|
