My husband and I have decided to venture into the "Trash to Treasure" business. I love it! I love painting or fixing things up. It is totally up my "alley" as my hubby would say. I am a sucker for buying lottery tickets so over the weekend hubby told me to stop and get some Powerball tickets. Well I couldn't resist and got a scratch off while I was at it. We like to play the $20 ones. I won $100! I was so excited. I used that money to buy a piece to refinish and then to buy some supplies I knew I would need for this and future projects. On my local garage sale site I found a cute table for $15. A steal right? I was so sad when I realized I didn't take a before picture. It was solid wood though.
We went a picked it up and brought it home. Hubby sanded it (which was optional but it had some scuffs so we wanted to make it more evened out) then I began painting. One coat didn't seem to be enough.
So I did a second coat...
I think it turned out great! I am so excited! We have about $30 invested in this piece and I am trying to sell it for $50. Hoping it sells well and we can do this on the side to make a little extra money. :)
Have you ever tried to chalk paint anything? How did you like it?
Hope to see you tomorrow :)
