The largest had been used for years as a chair side table in the living room but finally got supplanted by a new to us quaint old table with a shelf. The snack table has been hiding under the table in the corner for some time.
The next two smaller tables lived in the attic until the roof was replaced in 2007. They migrated to the shed deck. Not a good place to store anything wooden. 2013 they made their way back into the basement.
The finish needed to be removed, too many scratches. This is my first attempt at sanding a dark finish (the hands belong to my friend J who was visiting and helping).
The tables needed a primer that would cover dark wood so I used Kilz and ... learned a bit more about NOT overspraying an area. Bumpy.
I brought the tables into my 'kitchen painting area'. Two coats of CeCe Caldwell Chalk-Clay paint. Things were looking just fine.
The finish I chose was MinWax Polycrylic. Looked ok going on. Put a 2nd coat on the top. Dried overnight. Good hard surface but not the look I wanted. Too much shine. Likely more changes sometime in the future.
Thank you for visiting.
