|sorry about the floor, table is under an existing project...more later! ;)|
It was marked at $3.99. Seriously? So I immediately tried to figure out what was wrong with it. Nothing. Sturdier than our dining table. Ummm...Mine! I couldn't wait to get it home. Immediately I knew it was going with the folding table. The fun part was picking out the color and spray painting. After asking this cute couple in the spray paint isle at our local hardware store which out of two "looked more like Spring", I, or should I say we, chose Rust-Oleum 2X Lagoon in Satin.
And I LOVE it.
So much in fact, that I only lightly sanded the edges and a couple of places where it dripped a little to give it a slightly loved and used feel.
Happy thing is, I have leftovers from the second can and am looking for my next
victim lucky project to use it on. ;)
I imagine it will eventually sit on a patio, porch, or by somebody's pool as the perfect place to sit and read while enjoying a favorite drink.
The top was a perfect place for a chalkboard and would be fun for playing tic-tac-toe on with the kiddos...or leaving sweet messages.
One of the many things I hate to let go of but is going to the shop tomorrow in hopes of finding the perfect home. With no covered patio, we lack the right kind of space.
Hope you are able to feel a little bit of that spring fever where you are, if not, color is the perfect way to start!
