I found this table on the side of the road last Fall, and thought that it would make a great side table for a reading nook in our room. Unfortunately, it was too cold to paint it until now.
I started out by sanding off the rough edges and any sheen.
Next came a couple of light coats of primer,
Then I painted it a nice yellow, which looks great against the gray of our bedroom.
See the bird I wrote about a couple of weeks ago? Same color. Obviously. Because it is on the same piece of cardboard. With the same paint.
