Remember the table we got for 50.00?
It now looks like this
I decided to give a quick " white wash " using ASCP Pure white - and water - half and half to be precise.......( the table had to be sanded down to unify the main part and the leaves and I was too lazy )
When applying the mixture I paint very lightly - going heavier in some areas so that it looks " worn " in some places..................
It's one of my favorite methods of painting to be honest with you -
First of all it's much cheaper since you use half the paint
Secondly it's a very natural weathered look.............
It took 10 minutes ( IF ) to paint the entire piece !
I still have to put a couple of coats of polyurethane ( water based ) on it for protection
It's not staying in this corner - but I'm thinking I need a table for here too, most definitely !
I also have some nice big chunky legs I'll be replacing these with at some point -
The bench was done at least 7 years ago in layers of greys - it's only just now maybe needing a little freshening up - it's been outside covered in snow for 7 winters too - so not too bad
As you can see I have my fairy lights in the tree - there was quite the conversation about digging out my Christmas boxes - but I'll save that for another post ( my ears may or may not be permanently damaged - only time will tell )
Ummmmm - I can see you over there John - watching my every move like a hawk - and the Christmas lights are S.T.A.Y.I.N.G.
But it was worth it................in my world - fairy lights make everything prettier
and so does white paint
Now I have to figure out what to do with this - which magically appeared in my sink..............and which I've never cooked in my life !
John says - Can you go blog someone and ask them how to make Rhubarb pie?
But my ears are still damaged so I can't quite hear what he's asking of me ......................he didn't just ask me to BLOG SOMEONE did he? LMHO - he has no idea what a blog is - absolutely none
Have a wonderful Thursday everyone !
I'll be at these parties ♥
