One afternoon I was taking my son to a friends house to play and it just happened to be their trash day. I happened to spot a pile of things and just knew that I HAD to stop. :) Much to my sons dismay and "Oh mom, not again!" HA! They know that if I spot something that looks half way decent that I AM going to stop! I chuckle every time because they are always rolling their eyes at me. One of the joys of motherhood, I guess:)
First I sanded it down all over, then painted it with a small sponge brush. I just used acrylic craft paint in Folk Art Sky Blue that I purchased at Hobby Lobby. Since the table was so small and I wanted the brown to show through, it only took about an ounce (or half of a bottle of paint). I have yet to seal it with polyurethane, but since I like the distressed look I might just leave it as is for now.
Have you found anything good in the trash lately?
P.S. I am attempting to link up to Rhoda's Thrifty Treasures Party at Southern Hospitality. Not sure if I will be able to figure out how to or not:)
