Sams’ brother gave me this table a few weeks ago:
The table was good in two ways:
1 – I needed a table to put my television on.
2 – It was free.
If you think I exaggerate what this table was, look closer:
So I lived with it for a few weeks until yesterday when I cracked, bought a scraper, pulled out my sander, white paint, and specially purchased paper from Dick Blick for just such a project. I began by scraping the silly stickers off the top and sanded it down to a nice, smooth wood.
Ahhhh, better already!
I finished the project by painting the tabletop a matte white and used multi-purpose adhesive spray to add a special touch.
(Hint: an exacto knife helped me get the edges of the paper perfect.)
Voila! The finished product.
I love it!
