A blog hop with projects from some awesome bloggers, a Fusion Mineral Paint giveaway for you to enter, and there is my project table that had a rough start when it entered the family.
Daughter #1 picked it up at a garage sale, last day - last minute of a city wide shindig.
The table with four chairs was $50 bucks.
I mentioned I could paint it up for her, but she probably knew if it came to my house for a paint job it might be two years before it went back to hers, so they lived with it the way it was.
Unbeknownst to her I had other plans at her house while she was sipping rum.
So for the next two weeks her table sat in my entry way waiting for some inspiration and time.
Her instructions for the table were simple, "do whatever you want to it".
Whatever I wanted, included using the complimentary Fusion Mineral Paint I received - three colors to turn it into a weathered wood looking top.
Sterling, Ash, and Soapstone from the new Michael Penney Collection.
No one mentioned to Daughter #1 that on the way to our house the table flipped over and got all gouged up in the trailer.
The gouges didn't bother me, but they bothered her dad, so he sanded down the top, added some wood putty and fixed the scratches and bites that were taken out of the top.
I brushed them on in layers till I had a look I liked.
The paints went on nice and smooth with different tones and thickness depending on my recipe/ratio of water to paint.
I used the Ash as the back ground base color.
There are four chairs to this table, I stained one and sent her a text that I was going to let her do the other three.
It was probably the agony of remembering my own never ending dining room chair painting drama that made me not want to do all of hers.
The final step was to brush on Fusion Tough Coat Sealer which will give the table the added protection it needs to have plates knocking around on it.
Below is how the top looked before I sanded down all the layers of paint and brushed on the two coats of sealer.

All the little metal doo dads were added back on, I stained those too.
