earlier this month i refinished my dining room table.
i did just the top & left the "skirt", legs & chairs the original stain. the top is black (to match the kitchen cupboards) with a touch of turquoise.
during (no turning back now!!!):
after sanding i painted it with my "widow's oil black paint"!!
then i painted on a layer of turquoise -- this was a waste of paint!!!! based on the areas that i sanded for the turquoise to show through, i painted way too much area & it got covered up with black & didn't get sanded in all the areas that were painted, so it was a waste! i should have just painted it where i knew it was going to be sanded. oh well, it was fun anyhow!!!
then another coat of black & some strategic sanding & then i did some dry brushing of turquoise to make it show up better:
then some more sanding & poly'ing & sanding & poly'ing to get the right finish.
now what can i paint next??????!!!!!!!!!!
