Another table? Yep.
This one was for FREE though and I didn't even have to move it...because the previous owners left it (and 4 adorable chairs...more about that later).
See that streak? I don't know what it is, but that streak will haunt me (continue reading)
I don't know why this picture is sideways, but look at those pretty legs!
So sanded it down well (or so I thought)...
...and primed...wait, what? that "streak" is now BRIGHT red.
and the sides
I'm stubborn so I wasted time painting with ANOTHER coat of primer...
Still red. Ugh.
So I tried sanding it down really hard and it took forever just to get a 2"x2" part sanded well enough and I decided it wasn't worth it.
PLAN B: Buy MDF and 1x4" to make a new table top.
This was my first time using a circular saw...it was kind of terrifying. So I made a frame and gorilla glued it on (after sanding first, of course)
Primed and painted it white (using Valspar Latex Enamel in Gloss White) and I reattached the original pieces of wood the legs screwed into.
Voila! (Ignore the random towel, flip flops, and lunch box in my floor)
Isn't she pretty? I can't wait until the chairs are done!
Dang it! When did that happen?
Here's a little preview of what the chairs looked like BEFORE.
