. . .
Yesterday I had a what-was-I-thinking moment as I stood before the giant table in my evolving craft room. I jumped out of bed at about 6:30 am to brew some coffee and get cracking on the multiple painting projects I’ve got on the go. The table didn’t look so hard to paint when I was making the initial plans, but then I made the mistake of looking at the underside. Four thousand nooks, crannies and moveable parts. Bloody hell. So I walked away, finished painting my wee blue chair, and felt much better. (Not really.)
The chairs and table are an old varnished set that 2.0 acquired through a relative. Each of the four chairs and table will require two coats of primer and then an additional two coats of paint. It’s extremely labour intensive. This whole Craft Room project is labour intensive. But it’s gunna be sa-weet!
The entire house smells like Bullseye 1-2-3 primer, but I’m hoping it will help the paint adhere to the varnished set. Once I had the satisfaction of finishing the blue chair, I was able to muster the energy to put the first coat of primer on the table.
I’ve done one of the chairs in Benjamin Moore’s Bird’s Egg blue. I’ll be painting a second chair for the room in white.
But I’ve got to finish the table today. Oh, the table.
