Ecstatic about how this octagon coffee table turned out.
Friday I gave you a sneak peek of what I'd be working on....remember?
How did I paint this coffee table you ask? It was a super easy process.....
-cleaned/scrubbed the whole surface with 409 (ick, smells awful), but great for de-greasing and prepping for sanding.
-sand the heck out of it (I had to call in for back up aka Joshy Bobby and our oldest son)
-wipe it down yet again to remove all dust
-put painters tape over the fancy gold trim
-let the spray painting begin!!!
-I chose Rustoleum's heirloom white (super popular and amazing)
-best piece of advice would have to be spray evenly in somewhat thin layers (the thinner the better, I did about 3-4 coats in some areas)
Total cost of my update:
CL table: $15
spray paint: $12
painters tape: already had
Makes my pocket book scream for joy!!!!
P.S. In case you're wondering where I got the fab books from, you can easily get your mitts on them. Seriously LOVE how they look!
