I just got this cute little table for FREE! Pretty good price if I do say so myself! My sis gave it to me, of course I had to do a little painting, lol! Here she was before:
I am pretty sure the slates are for plates, right? Well see, some of the dowels are missing, so I popped them out of the outer edges and put them in the middle. Then I made the DIY chalk paint (1 cup latex paint + 1tbsp unsanded grout) and coated the baby! Those little dowelie things are no joke to paint! Good thing I was going to shab it out anyway! The first coat I mixed was lighter than the second...I used the same paint but... I uh... didn't mix it up really well! (Totally on purpose right?)
Originally my plan was to put this in the shop, but I kind of fell in love. I think I need this in my house!
Do you do that with your little projects too?
