I finally got the tea cart painted. It still needs some touching up in a few areas, but I wanted to get a picture up. Here is what it looked like before.
And here is how it looks with white paint. I started with kilz primer and then used an exterior white paint. It took a few coats because the exterior paint seemed a little thinner. I've been painting for years, but I haven't used exterior that much.
You may remember that fabulous garage sale that I went to a couple of weeks ago. Well my inlaws were kind enough to bring down the items I left in their garage. So here are a few more finds.....and yes, there is still more that I will share another time.
I love this ice cream chair. I plan to put it outside with a plant on it.
I am so in love with this table and can't wait to paint it white! I have been looking for a side table like this for a long time.
This vanity chair was only $1. I plan to paint it and recover the seat.
We only have 4 dining chairs and so when we have company, we have to sit on stools. I bought 2 of these chairs so that we don't have to use the stools again. I'm going to paint them white and recover the seat in something fabulous.
This iron chandelier was only $1 as well. It is going to look so cool with a paint job. I'm still debating whether to keep it or sell it on craigslist. I guess we'll just have to see.
So I've really added to my already very long project list. At this rate, it's going to be a couple of years before I get stuff finished. I love doing it though and doubt I'll ever change...lol.
On wed I am leaving for Canada to visit my sister. So for the next 2 weeks, I will be blogging from her house and will share pictures of her fabulous cottage!
