Drop Leaf Table

I spent the last couple weeks working on this drop leaf table.

I failed getting a before picture of the table. But just picture laminate medium brown wood.

Pretty ugly and boring.

I wanted to make this table bright and fun and I think I succeeded!

First step was sanding and priming the piece. I always use Zinnser primer. I have tried using a cheaper brand and it was a terrible mistake. Like 8 hours of sanding and scraping peeling paint mistake. That 8 hours might of even been worse than giving birth to my children…….

I painted the legs white and the top a fun aqua color. I love the combo.

Ahh drop leaf tables are just so awesome. I don’t know why but they just are.

I distressed the legs and chairs pretty heavily using a medium grit sandpaper.

I got these two chairs free. Again, picture ugly, medium brown laminate wood for before.

I am saving this piece for Junktoberfest, only like 3 months away!

As always, thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
