How was your weekend? Ours has been busy, as usual, with
football marching band season starting, and my first Reinvented furniture and home decor sale coming up in less than three weeks, oh my.
Have I told you yet that I’ll be a vendor at the Springfield Flea Market and Antique Show September 18-20? I am SO excited. And kind of freaked out. I’ll share all of the details soon.
But for now, let’s talk painted furniture. Our drop leaf table is finished!
Steps three (the second coat of paint) and four are finally complete. I didn’t think step three needed its own post so I combined them.
Step four involved a light sanding. One word of warning: when you have chosen a dark color, the sanding step, even with a fine paper with lighten the color and leave sanding “marks.”
Don’t panic, a light coat of wax will take care of that. After brushing (you can use a brush made for waxing, or a paint brush) or wiping (an old sock or t-shirt works well) on a LIGHT coat of wax, wait about 30 minutes and then buff with a cotton cloth. The color will return to the dark, rich color you expected.
I did more distressing than I usually do on this table, and I like the look.
This table will be for sale at Springfield.
And here’s a little sneak peak of a new to us item that will be there too!
Have a great week friends!!
