over the summer i did a few fun projects for our school, focusing much of my time updating our administration office reception area. one of the details i added, besides the new lamp and the chalkboard globe, was this fun table.
i got this table at a garage sale for $3! although the condition was pretty good, it had too many dings and scratches to keep as solid wood. i decided to inject some color into the room through this table, but still keep a bit of the warmth of the wood showing through.
i grabbed 4 different paints i had in my cupboards, blues and greens, and got to work. i used blue painter’s tape and eyeballed where i wanted my colors to be blocked off. this definitely could’ve been done more precisely, but i’m not much for perfection ;) my only regret was not burnishing the tape to the table (rubbing it to prevent leaks) because i got a few leaks. thankfully, they scraped off with my nail pretty easily.
a coat of deft (a clear spray coat, available at home depot i believe) finished off the look.
with all this new color, the walls got a coat of fresh white paint. now i just need to finish off those drapes and the room will be nearly done!
