I had such a wonderful day! My family took such good care of me! I even got to finish a project I had started earlier in the week.
I am finally redoing my porch (more about that in a later post) and I had found a table from TJ Maxx that I thought I could tweak. It's made of reclaimed barn wood (which I loved) but it was 24" tall and I needed a coffee table. Also, it had no finish on it and I knew it would not last outside on the porch for long without something to protect it.
No problem! I can fix that! I brought it home and had my hubby cut it down to about 18".
Here it is at its new height...
Then instead of staining it, I decided to water down some black paint I had on hand. It's about 1/3 paint and the rest is water.
After it dried in the sun for a bit I decided to try a polyurathane we had gotten from lowes awhile back but were never able to use. Notice the $1 price tag!
Once it dried, I could not have been happier with the results! Don't you love when that happens?
Here's a sneak peek of it in it's new home on my porch. Hopefully soon I will reveal the whole porch redo.
