So once upon a time, I had this crazy idea that I wanted to take a perfectly nice table, sand it down, draw all over it, woodburn it, paint it white, then paint it black, and then paint it all different colors. And Jason thought I was crazy, naturally.But I did it anyways. AHHH carpal tunnel!! My wrists, my aching wrists. I taped off the sides, and put down a white primer, then proceeded to do a base black, getting the crevices really well...
And then got busy painting! Lots and lots of paint; pretty much everything needed two or three coats.I finished it with 3 layers of a polycrylic finish, but I think after the fair, I'll do 2 or 3 more. I just don't want to be picking out food crumbs that get stuck in the niches.
Whew! Fun summer project. Off to the county fair in the morning!
I'm gonna win that $3 first prize!
