Table Continuation

Beach Bungalow Time

I made this table a few days ago.

After completing the building of the table, I realized it needed more structural support so that it wouldn’t sway side to side. So here’s what I did:

I finished one layer of paint, and I sanded the table top once and painted that again.

I decided to just use some white satin paint I had a gallon of already. I decided to use acrylic colored paint that I already had to mix into the white paint to make a color I wanted. I mixed a tiny bit of black, blue, red, and yellow and it came to this light greenish gray color. I kind of wanted it to be more taupe (kind of like the color of driftwood) rather than having the tint of green. But anyway here it is now:

I decided that I need to sand more of the table and do another coat of paint all over the whole table so it is easy to clean. I am going to mix this paint a little differently so that it’s not as green. So I need a bit more red in my paint. I also need to go buy more acrylic paint because I ran out. After I sand it and paint it again, I need to spray some lacquer to seal it up real good (which will also make it easier to clean). So excited for it to get done :)

What are you up to these days?

    Very nice – I plan on adapting for a longer/shorter table to use in my cousins kitchen – we need prep space!

      Thanks Tiffany. You should totally do this. It took awhile to make, but it wasn’t hard. I will never regret making this table! It has been so useful :)
