Hubby and I have officially started painting the outside of our house.
And let me tell ya, it’s a lot of work … lots of scraping and some boards need to be replaced.
Not to mention we have a lot of trim to paint in a few different colors.
But before all that got started, I gave a roadside rescue game table a makeover.
It’s too modern for my taste and I cringed when he dragged it home.
It might not look that bad from this angle …
I told hubby I didn’t want it, but it has a special something I’ll share with you in a minute.
So I ended up working a little magic on it.
I brushed on a layer of Louis Blue, let it dry, and then followed with a coat of Old White.
I like to layer the colors because they’ll all come through when you start distressing.
But as luck would have it, I didn’t have enough sheets of the paper I wanted to use.
So on to plan B because I didn’t feel like putting my make-up on and going to the store!
Then I distressed the entire piece with sandpaper so a little bit of blue and wood would show.
Finally, I sealed it with a light coating of clear wax that you simply rub on like waxing a car.
The drawers aren’t really drawers … they’re games!
Even though this trash-to-treasure game table had been sitting out by the road, the insides were in great shape! The games are the only reason why I kept this jewel.
The bottom drawer contains tic-tac-toe.
Well, after we get the outside of the house painted!
