Remember the table from last week…the one the JTS cut a new table top for?
Well, I finally got it painted.
Beadboard Table Top Painted Pewter Gray
When I spotted the table (without top) at my favorite junk shop, I fell in love with the detailed legs and the scroll work on the top.
I used to pass on pieces like this.
I’m not crazy about using an electric saw.
I still use a small handsaw, and believe me….a small handsaw=small project.
When the JTS retired he started volunteering to help with my projects and the rest is history.
When you guys leave comments about the JTS, I always read them to him.
He gets a kick out of them.
The JTS cut a top for the table from fake beadboard.
I decided to paint the table with Reclaim paint in Mocha, but I was out…..so Pewter Gray it is!
I think that was a wise choice because gray is a really popular color right now.
I wanted a little of the white beadboard to show in places so I…..
distressed the grooves in the beadboard using a very small piece of doubled up 150 grit sandpaper.
The electric sander would have been overkill on this piece.
A little tip for manual sanding……
double your sandpaper and use a small piece.
It’s easy to handle and control.
Doesn’t that bit of white add drama to the table.
You guys know it’s been really cold here and the second round of snow in a two week period left us with 9 inches on the ground.
So not photos outside in the carport.
I staged these photos in the kitchen on a dreary, cloudy day.
Photo quality is very very important in the blog world.
But you guys know that.
Since I’m short on talk and big on photos I try to get a few decent shots of my projects for the blog.
The color scheme in our home leans towards browns and earth tones ….not grays…..so I just work with what I have.
Hope you enjoyed the project.
I’m spending some time with my granddaughter this week since we’re both on Spring Break!
Her birthday is this week also so that means spoiling her even more than usual
Have a great day,
linking to these parties….
