I picked the 'easiest' piece first. It just needed cleaning, a bit of sanding, some paint (and should have started with primer-sealer first) and some Satin Varithane to make it back into the furniture fold.
Here is the before. You've seen these D shaped small tables many times. They continue to be popular - good for a lamp or coffee cup or a pile of books. Easy to move around. Fits into small spaces.
Washing - done
Bit of top sanding - done
Painting - started
After 2 coats of CeCe Caldwell Vintage White
had to dig out the Zinsser Primer-Sealer Stain Killer Bulls Eye 1-2-3 to cover the bleed through from the original finish, mostly on the turned edges, inside of top, parts of top ...
Added a final coat of CeCe Vintage White.
Painted outside today, a sunny 14 Celsius,
needed to dry inside before adding the Satin Varithane
with DGS at home for lunch, grocery trip,
gave ride from Automotive Shop
and school pickup/drop off trips mixed in.
