table this

Please nobody hand me a paint brush and furniture ever again. Give me a spray can, and I'm good. A brush, not so much. Just now as I was putting the finishing touches on one piece of furniture (read: trying to paint over mistakes), I realized the problem all along has been that I use way too much paint. A discovery that would've come in handy like, yesterday. Oh well. I've got something really cute in mind for the piece that I've jacked up the most. Something that will distract from the paint job, thank goodness.

In the meantime, to boost my morale, I'm posting these tables, which I spray painted, and am very happy with. They cost 10 dollars each, at Goodwill. I didn't mind them dark at all, but they didn't suit my, um, let's call it decor.

About 4 cans of Valspar's Almond color and now, they're oh so right.

Welp. Back to work. Have a great 4th, everybody! Eat a piece of barbecued chicken for me.

They look good!

Just a suggestion should you ever take on a project such as this again...try a small roller for the larger surface areas and the brush for the hard to reach places.

Although it looks like you have mastered the spray paint. I will be looking for your tag in the neighborhood!

Hahaha! We'll know if we see "CarlitaDee" in honey almond spray paint on the side of building, who's the culprit!

Love the tables. Very versatile style!
