GUEST POSTING AND STILL WORKING ON THE TABLE

Good Morning! Today I’m over at Lori’s blog talking about my boys rooms

I’m also still working away on the table in my bedroom

I tried to clean the base just to see how it would look all shined up…

Below is what it looked like after I scrubbed the heck out of it… Yeah, not a good lookShifty

So I just gave up with that and started priming the top

Because this table is in my room and I didn’t want to haul it downstairs, I needed a primer to use that I didn’t need to sand the surface, and that did not have too much of an odor… This is where this goodness comes in!

I’m always asked about what primers I use on my different pieces.  I’ll try to post about the different ones.  I use about 3 or 4 different primers depending on the piece I’m working on…

Anyway, I primed the top of the table

And that was one coat… The coverage was really good!

Then I painted it the same white as the other white in my room and started adding the fabric.  Here is a sneak peek of that!

Your table is looking great, I love a skirted table and I love a DYI'er!

I am very impressed with what you manage to do; making your house look so amazing and raising 3 beautiful kids and blog about this all!
Is the base of your table made of brass? If so, brass is very easy to clean with tomato sauce! (ketchup)

It looks great, Lakeitha. I am interested to see if Frank's tomato sauce solution works.

Take care,

Lori
