Surprisingly, making over this table didn’t take anywhere near as long as I thought it would. Yay! If you don’t remember, I started with this:
Once all the pieces were stripped…well, I painted. I added some water (can’t really tell you how much because I didn’t measure) to some Valspar True White semi-gloss paint and lightly brushed over the whole table.
I painted and did some intense sanding. And then painted again. And then sanded. I love the different dimensions the layers bring! I put a wood lacquer all over the table to protect it. It added just the right amount of gloss. The final result…
Oh table, you’re so so pretty!! Chairs–not so much. Next up, recovering those chairs! Still trying to figure out what exactly I want to recover them with. I have visions of creams and whites, but is that really practical?? I think originally I was thinking a pattern with color. So many choices! On the hunt for fabric to match my lovely kitchen table. Tschüß!!
