Here is one more project from the loot I scavenged from the theatre company otherwise known as my Scavenging Jackpot. There were several pieces of furniture, all in bad shape, and all in desperate need of makeovers.
This is actually the fifth project I’ve completed from the pile and I probably have at least that many left.
This little table was not in the best of shape, but it was sturdy and just crying out for a makeover.
The top was sanded off and there was amazingly nice wood under all the water stains, scratches and fading.
It looks like I put on a white primer. I didn’t ; I originally thought I wanted a white base. Once I had the table painted, I changed my mind and fell back on my favorite combination of black and wood. My theme song should be “Paint it Black.”
A coat of black chalk paint was sanded just a bit to bring out the edges. The bottom of the table was finished with a coat of clear wax.
The top of the table got a few coats of a hand rubbed, tung oil varnish. Between coats, the top was smoothed with a fine steel wool then wiped with a lint free cloth.
Don’t throw away your crappy table, give it a makeover, or better yet, give it to me!
Have a great weekend.
