Table redo

I have postponed posting for a while, because I lost the memory card where the {before photos} for this post are stored. I don't know how I lost it, but I just decided to post anyway, so you will have to use your imagination. If I happen to find the card in the future, I will add the photos to the post :)

I have been looking for a table at DI for a while, that had good bones, and I found this one last week. It was $10, and very sturdy. It looked like a honey maple, with some minor wear and tear, that I found added to it's personality. I knew I wanted to glaze it, so I was happy for a few minor scratches and dings.


Anyhow... I spray painted it this blue called {blue slate} by Rustoleum. I have to just say... I LOVE the Ultra Cover 2X. I never have to do two coats, and it goes so far!



So, imagine that I have a picture of the table in natural wood here:

Imagine I have a picture of the table after being spray painted, but before glaze here:

You have such a good imagination! :)

Here are the after shots. I think it is just what the room needed!

WOW, I'm just cruising the net, looking at different DIY's. I came across your post and had a really good laugh. I have the exact same table and did the exact colour and finish on mine as you did on yours. Looks GREAT!!! :)
