Painted Table And Chairs

Let me just say, it's not perfect and my house is still trashed from all the projects I have going.
Here is the before picture of my table. Blech.

Yes, I know we're missing the cross bar underneath. But doesn't it look so much better now that it's painted?
Here it is, back in my kitchen.
Another view.....
I'm planning to make some cushions for the benches and I may have to figure out a way to make a clear table cloth cause I know my kids will have this scratched up in no time.
Next time I do this, remind me to wear gloves. My fingers are BLACK and I'm having a tough time getting it off. How'd I do the table you ask? I used liquid sander to take the shine off, underneath the table and chairs I used the cheapest black spray paint from Wal Mart, on the rest of the table I used black satin spray paint. And it was all done before lunch. Go me!

That is excellent! I need to redo your Dad's old wood and iron table. I think that I'll spray paint the iron like you did. The liquid sander sounds like a fabulous idea too, thanks!!!

Angela said...

yea!!! You are a budding designer. I wish I could come play with you. Don't you just love all the Blissfully Domestic stuff!!!! Anywhoo- another little thing that I thought I might share for future projects on the "cheap". If you guys have a Lowe's nearby they sell black satin spray paint for 98 cents. I use it all the time. As far as getting the spray paint off your hands try a pumice stone. Works for me. I can't see what you will do next!!!
