The question is what should I start on, I have 4 projects I am thinking of. Well me being me why not start on the biggest, most annoying and just get it out of the way.
I have been wanting to paint/stain my 28 year old solid oak kitchen table for about 8 years. I phoned about getting the chairs done and found a place in town that would do them for $200 EACH. Are you CRAZY. I could buy knew ones for that. Well maybe if I went back to 1989 :).
Well around about now I could feel my dad breathing down my neck saying, "Are you mental" "You don't paint over solid Oak." Ooops. I just kept going. I had a vision of an old white kitchen set and nothing was stopping me.
The neat thing about the chalk paint is that you don't have to sand, you just paint right over whatever it is you are painting. It doesn't have to be wood, it can be mason jars, metal, indoor or outdoor. Very versatile. Might have to be taking some to the cottage with me.
How could I not resist putting in a wee bit of distressing on my distressed chairs.
Patience is not one of my virtues. It was killing me not to attack the top of the table, but no the chairs had to be done first. Thank goodness for Michael Buble, he is great painting music. Also great cooking music, great cleaning music. Michael goes with everything in my house. :)
Now what to do next. ??????????
