I sat on my deck looking at the ugly black
wrought iron coffee table in front of me...
I thought about how much I didn't like it and
I decided to get up and do something about it right now!
I went down to the basement where I keep the
things I pick up on the side of the road but don't know
what to do with pile.
In that pile was a table leaf that was exactly the right size.
That is how I know that things are meant to be...
I flipped the table over onto the table leaf
and screwed them together.
It was seriously the perfect fit!
I painted the whole table light green, then taped off
stripes and painted the stripes white.
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Versailles and Pure White.
When the paint dried I sanded the table with very
fine sandpaper to make it very smooth. I sanded
extra hard in several places to give it a worn look.
I gave the table 2 coats of Polycrylic for protection.
This table is under a canopy but the varnish will keep it
protected from the elements and from stains.
Several hours later I had an awesome new outdoor coffee table.
Now I can sit back down and find something else to re-do.
This project was easy and just meant to be!
