OH YES!! More furniture projects,
and then put a coat of semi gloss, latex paint on them. I painted the inside of the cubbies with some leftover Valspar’s Lyndhurst Gallery Beige (it is a dark color, and now I wish I had used something more bright.) I have a king sized bed, and these two headboards reach from side to side…I am thinking one day of making them into a day bed…but that’ll be another post.
I also have been working on a table for my daughter. She uses some of the furniture I re-finish/paint in her classroom. This is one of those projects.
I really didn’t think about taking the before pics of this table. I do however, want to point out that if you are going to paint a piece of furniture, start with it upside down!!!! I can not stress this enough. It makes things so much easier. Find a work surface that is a comfortable height for you to work on, and then…turn it over. It insures good coverage, to all those places you would not see otherwise. Especially with primer. I included a pic of the primer I like to use. (I must include that Zinsser, and Valspar does not pay me to advertise for them. I use these products because I find that they work best for me. Use what works best for you.) I love the color of this piece it is called Sumptuous Purple by Valspar. I got a sample of it for just a few dollars. This is enough to do a project without having purple paint just sitting around. Although, I have to say….I do love this purple!
I put a clear coat of polyurethane on the table top because….well….it’s a table top.
Happy projects, from my garage to yours!
