Finally! This little guy is DONE... (till I want to paint it again... is what the hubby says. LOL)
I can guarantee you that I'm not painting this thing, again... for a LOOOONG while! lol.
Not that it was even hard... It was just one of those projects that stare you in the face... that you just can't seem to get motivated enough to finish!
Maybe it was the cold... maybe is was the lack of time... either way... it's done now!
Well, now he looks like THIS!
I debated on about a million different colors to paint this perfect entryway table, and when I thought that yellow, blue, or green was going to be IT... I would always resort back to white.
So white it is. I hope to decorate the table top with lots of color... so I'm thinking that I went the right direction now, for sure!
I'm in love with these cute knobs from Hobby Lobby. Just the right touch of added color!
Re-doing this table was fairly simple...
primmed and painted the doors, drawers and table... with spray primmer... the BEST! SO easy!
Painted everything regular ol' Valspar semi-gloss white, from the can, with a small non textured roller.
took some sandpaper to the places I wanted distressed.
resprayed all the hardware, white.
Tip: Stick your screws into cardboard to spray them easily, without rolling around!
Used my fav. mixture of
Valspar's clear mixing glaze and equal parts of black craft paint
applied on the exposed, sanded surfaces, wiped with a damp rag
Because the paint was already semi-gloss and had a lot of shine... I didn't add any poly.
I didn't before, when it was red either... and it held up great!
The new clean, crisp look is JUST what I was going for!
