One of them was my husband's grandma's and I've been meaning to redo it for about 7 or 8 years now and always get busy with other stuff. It's a great table, and for a while I was all about red...but I decided it was time to change it up a little.
Then came my handy leftover gallon of Sherwin Williams Reliable White. In between coats(it took 2) I started on the other table. Wanted the drawer inset to be a different color so I taped some more and started painting with Valspar's Creek Bend.
While my tables were drying I pulled out this cute little bench that needed a face lift before it can go into the shop. Can't seem to find the before picture, but trust me, it needed help. This is the first coat of Valspar's Creek Bend, and a sand between coats. It took 2 coats and after drying a quick wipe on wax.
And look at how great it turned out!!! The top was some kind of awful brown, so I covered it in the perfect sized scrap of yellow and white floral print. This guy is definitely going into the shop this week!!
Oh and you probably wanna see those finished tables. After the paint dried they also got a coat of wipe on wax to seal em up.
So the chevron isn't perfect, but I'm really happy with both tables!! My 10 year old told me that I am UH-MAY-ZING and he understands why I make things to sell in the shop cause I'm so good at it. I could never redo another piece of furniture and feel pretty satisfied :)
There's a pretty good chance I'll have some more before and afters this week, so become a follower and see what else I come up with!!
