I called you last week from my car. I was on my way to pick up a little table that I had found on Craigslist and I couldn't wait to tell you about it, but Russ said that you weren't home. For no reason at all, I said "She isn't on her way to pick up something off of Craigslist, is she??!" Because that would be just too weird.
"Well, yes she is," Russ said.
We are the same person, on two different sides of the country! It's like you are my twin, but born three years later.
So I did get the table, and it is already painted and sitting in my front living room. I love it. I was thinking I might resell it on Craigslist but now I can't bear to part with it.
After sanding, I primed with Bulls-Eye and then did the first coat with some bright blue spraypaint that I found in my paint stash:
I was running out of paint, so I just concentrated on the edges because I knew that this blue would be the underneath color, showing only where I sand down:
The day that I painted it was 117 degress outside! I was only out there for about 10 or 15 minutes, and once I came back in I had to sit down for a while with a cold drink. It wasn't until later that night that I heard what the temp was. If I had known I would have saved the project for another day!
I always check the "oops" paint shelf at Lowes and Home Depot, and usually end up buying 2 or 3 cans of anything that looks fairly neutral. That is where the top color came from that I used on my table. It is a greenish-gray and I think I paid $1 for it:
Looking at it now, I wish I had distressed it a bit more. Here is how it looks in my work-in-progress living room:
It's been a long and busy summer so I wasn't able to blog much, but now that the kids are back in school I have lots of time to devote to blogging so stay tuned!
Until next time,
Ever After Photography
