One Tiny Project

I had an action packed weekend! I mosaiced some light switches, planted some trees, found a beautiful Italian table at the farmers market, and had the paint man come and give me an estimate, which I will need your help choosing the perfect colors. I have them narrowed down, now I must choose the shade. (Pictures of this will be posted this week).

I also found this table Saturday morning at our local thrift store. It was only $5 and I had to have it. I’m using it as a printer stand in my office. It’s amazing what a little paint can do. Here is the table below. If you’re needing to paint some furniture I will recommend you using Krylon spray paint, it’s amazing and you only need 1 or 2 coats. The cheap stuff you buy at Dollar General, or the $1 cans from Wal-Mart don’t work! TRUST ME I have learned from experience. Here is the kind you should get below.



Before

Make sure you sand your surface before you paint it!




FINISHED PRODUCT

I will post pictures of it in my office when I get mom's stuff out, she closes on her house tomorrow! :) CONGRATS MOTHER!

You painted a table in leopard flip flops? where the Hell are the overalls? I am so disappointed ryan.

Fabulous find! I love that table and it will make a great printer stand. It is amazing what paint will do for furniture. True about the cheap paint... I put probably 7 - 8 coats of cheap paint on some wicker tables last summer...it was horrible and really you can still see the white through the black.

Kfoo: Yes I did, I don't own a pair of overalls, but I'm guessing thats what you do your yard work in...

Thank you LES & ALLIE! Can't wait for you to see it in PERSON!

Gay-Yes your right! It's amazing on the spray paint, it's SO worth buying the expensive kind! It saves you money in the long run!
