This week I am blogging it to you from my parents' house in New Jersey. Before I skipped town I was able to finish up a furniture painting project I've been working on for a while. I'm still honing my mediocre painting skills so these projects tend to take some time. You may remember this table from previous posts.
Totally sweet table from Freecycle!
One kid-free weekend last month I was able to squeeze in a little stripping on this baby!
I used Citristrip recommended by Centsational Girl which worked great. The table has a lot of nooks and crannies and I did my best to strip and sand to get a clean surface. I was impatient to see the table with a new coat of paint so I may have skimped a little in some areas. (FYI: any imperfections will henceforth be referred to as "distressing" and "shabby chic". Go along with it- it makes me feel better m'kay?)
After some spray primer and many, many coats of white semi-gloss, the table is ready for it's reveal.
I'm using the table as the catchall for mail and keys by our back door. The table I had there before was too tall, skinny and brown. I love how the white pops against the blue paint!
This is just one half of the mud room nook I'm trying to create by our back door. I have a shelf to hang on the other side of the door and I need to paint this bench.
Hopefully I will be sharing the completed mud room look soon!
Thanks for visiting!
