kitchen table makeover
Tue 24th, Feb, 2015
Hi beach cottage friends, another week is upon us is it not? I am not quite sure where the time is going, where the days are going but somehow it’s the end of February and life is busy here, even without the reno life is busy.
So I thought I would share the progress on the kitchen table…I painted the base with Porters chalk paint and am pretty pleased with how the paint turned out.
The top, hmmm not so much, this as you see it here, is after some hefty old bleaching and it doesn’t really look any different…so next stop is a commercial furniture bleach…to be honest I think this would come up (as I am thinking how I want it to look in my head) if it were dipped…there is not much chance that that will be happening anytime soon around here….right now I am knee deep in bathroom tile and bath tub choosing (man it’s a long long long time since I have had a bath – am considering renting a room at a hotel for the night just so I can have a bath)….about the only thing that will be being dipped around here is most likely me…I need to be dipped in something long,warm and soothing…
So yes next stop with this is getting the top lighter and then I’ll pop a matte sealer on top…
OK, I am off to, in the middle of choosing a tub, order an oven – and I can tell you from where I am sitting shoe shopping is a lot better therapy than oven shopping.
Over and out.
