Since I already have an unfinished dining table in my garage that needs to be stripped, I didn't want to take on another refinishing job. Plus the fact that I'm teaching myself how to refinish as I go along and have already made mucho mistakes that I've had to fix on the dining table. I had visions of sweating over these little tables for months!
I've been painting furniture for a number of years now, but the dining table is my first refinishing project. And until I get that figured out I'm not trying another one! Of course if I would have read all of the directions in the first place ... but that's another issue.
So I patched and sanded the deep scratches and decided to paint the tables with "Old White" caulk paint.
I then distressed them a bit to bring out some of the detail.
I think they look much fresher now.
I can see them in a room like this:
I love this look!
Love and Lilac
But since I don't have a place to put them, I think I'll be selling the set (Mr. P not included!).
On another note, I know people are looking at my blog because I see the page counts, but I'm getting an inferiority complex about my number of followers. I know that some of my friends have subscribed via email, but that's not becoming a follower. So please consider following me! I'm going to be doing a give-away next week as a bribe!
