They are pictured here sanded and ready to paint. I hand painted the primer, but the high gloss enamel paint for the top coat was extremely thick and just too hard to use during the high heat weather we were having so we resorted to canned spray paint. I should say my husband resorted to it, because he is SO much better with a spray can than I am! He did a great job!
The next project was a tall, but small table. Wooden legs and a square top covered with denim, of all things! And badly stained! I sanded the legs and used a grey chalk paint followed by a clear poly. It took several coats of everything, including white chalk paint on the fabric top. The chalk paint worked very well for the top (rolled on) and I really covered it with about 6 coats of poly. It was my first use of chalk paint and I'm not impressed. I don't care for the brush marks and I'm not one that wants to have to re-wax furniture every few months, so poly is my only other choice for top coating and my skill with that is sketchy. Or maybe it was just the weather???? Anyhow, I love the little table!
The first photo shows it sanded and ready to paint/stain. The next is the finished piece.
MUCH more to come! I have nearly finished six chairs and will post those as soon as they are done.
