Bonjour tous le monde :)
Today, I'm writing about my coffee table.
It all started like this↓
I liked the shape but it was a little too "country" for me.
One day, I brought her out on the deck and started stripping the top coat,
thinking I'll stain the top dark walnut colour.
It was not too hot, a good day to work outside.....until.....
I gave a good stripping.....
Then the beautiful grain pattern started...to....
So I gave up on my dream of staining and started painting....lol
It was one of those "Oops" paint from a local home center.
You know sometimes they have mistint or returned paints and
they sell them much cheaper than regular paint?
One day, my husband went there and said to the clark he'd take everything if he can have them at A DOLLAR EACH.
And she said.....OK!! :)
He came home with like 10 cans of paint :)
( but some of them are Venetian Plaster or stone effect ones so I can't really use them)
So I used one of these paint..... it didn't say "mistint"on the can, it said
"MISTAKE" in capital.
I was wondering what does that exactly mean but I used it anyway, yes, I'm very easy-going :)
but as you can see the door, the colour didn't really mixed or something...
I had to put 5 coats to cover the wood.
(Then in my head I went " quality pays!" ....oh well..)
Anyway, I finished painting, applied Polyurethan,then waxed.
I did white line around the top.
I think it's very Frenchy :)
The chicken coop wire is ripped one side, but it's for us to keep in our living room so I'll leave as is until the boys kick their foot into it and completely destroys it or something...then I'll fix it :)
The door slides sideways:)
What do you think?
I'd appreciate it if you can leave me a comment!
Have a great weekend, everybody :)
