As you probably know, I’m never satisfied to have JUST ONE project going on at a time. I’m usually all over the map at my house, tackling 12 billion things at once. It seems things take forever to get done.
But the beauty of my “work on everything all at once” approach is that sometimes LOTS of projects get FINISHED all at once. That, I like.
BEFORE: WOOD TABLE
Just when I shocked a few of you by admitting that I painted my antique coffee table blue, this weekend I also finished painting my previously unpainted WOOD dining table WHITE. Yes, I painted another wood table. See what it looked like BEFORE?
DISCLAIMER: This table was just a simple not fancy pine Pottery Barn circa 1990 something, no antiques were maimed or devalued in this makeover. I do LOVE natural wood and have no intentions of painting ALL of my wood pieces. Just the less than lovely ones that need a little lift.
And now it’s white.
As you can see in the top after pic (yes, this picture was added to this original post to show you what it looks like with the leaves!), I didn’t paint the leaves. So now I’ve got a two toned white and wood table, which apparently is quite trendy now, but for me it was just one of those happy trend setting decorating accidents! Ha!
It is not perfectly distressed. It is not perfectly painted. It is not perfectly anything. I simply used a coat of Zinsser primer and a coat of white trim paint. DONE. All of these pictures are the same table makeover, just in various stages of my ever-changing dining room decor!
The truth about why I’m completing painting projects is that I had a deadline this past weekend. When I have a worthy deadline, I find the time to finish all sorts of things.
