a place to sit and work

We got this table and chair from my father-in-law a few months back and I just finally got around to refinishing them while my cousin was here for spring break.
I lightly sanded both pieces, removed all the stickers, and filled in some gouges in the tabletop with some wood putty. Then I spray painted both first with Krylon white primer. I painted the chair with Rustoleum American Accents in "Summer Squash"
I painted the table top with the same "Green Apple" that I used for my son's smaller bookcase.
Once that was completely dry, I taped off the top and flipped it over to paint the rest "Summer Squash" like the chair.

I still have a few more projects left in my son's room (including painting the matching chair & one more bookcase, and re-finishing his toy box) and then I'll figure out how to situate everything so it's not so crowded. It's not too bad for now, though.


  1. Oh my goodness, it looks awesome! Both my children need bedroom furniture, so I hope there are some projects like this in my future!!

  2. Thanks! I'm having a really great time putting this house together and my son's room has definitely been the most fun so far. :o)
