And to the left, the table base with primer on.
To the right- me talking on the phone while starting the first coat of paint on the primer. Don't ya love my awesome plaid shirt? It's an old one Z let me wear. You know I wasn't about to get my shirts all paint covered! Gotta love it!!
Left: The table top with one coat of paint.
Right: Table base with one coat.
Left: Chairs getting their first coat of paint. Wow, these babies took forEVER! And of course I didn't spray paint- each one took approximately 1/2 hours. Whew! :)
And finally, 16 hours later:
A "new" dining set ready to entertain!!
Approximate cost of project:
$40 - table & chairs via craigslist [not counting the 3 other vintage-y chairs I'm going to refinish]
$15 - paint brushes / mini rollers
$20 - paint, primer, polyurethane (quart sizes)
$15 - refurbished belt sander (was $30, but I'm only counting half since we'll use it again and again!)
For a Dining set (table has removable leaf) that looks almost new!!
What do you think? Worth the effort? :)
