This table was originally one of those orangy pieces you see everywhere. My dining table is orange; one day I WILL paint it, or get rid of it, but right now there's a long list before I get to it! I actually think just about everyone has or has had one of these pieces in their home at some stage... because op shops are always full of the stuff! I love this one because it's solid, a good shape with shapely legs.
The colour I chose is British Paints Pacific Lagoon.
I wanted a weathered, worn look, so I used two coats of primer, two coats of paint, then I went crazy with the sander. YES I was nervous - but it turned out just as I had imagined it. The legs were a little harder because of their shape, so these were mostly done by hand... I find sanding a good way to release frustration - say after grocery shopping (which I HATE), or after one or other of the small people have had a huge meltdown over something so minor I can't even remember what it was in the first place!
This girl is destined for the Avoca Beachside Markets this weekend. I have my fingers crossed as it was rained out last month! So far there is no rain predicted so I will just need to keep them crossed!
Thanks for stopping by...
