So lets begin with the overall cost breakdown of my cool new table..
Table – free
4x Legs – $60 (Ikea)
1x Oil-Based Primer - $7.98 (Home Depot)
1x Semi-gloss Latex Paint – $7.94 (Home Depot)
1x Semi-gloss Poly – $16.57 (Home Depot)
Painting supplies – had these around the house already
Total – $92.49
I’m pretty pleased with that….compared to the cost of a new table! And now…on to the remainder of the project…
For the record, lets just say that you need to make sure you are using a very, very, VERY clean brush before beginning to apply polycrylic to your very cool table. Or you may find yourself sanding back a layer and applying a 5th coat of black paint.
Or not. You know…if you’re awesome like me, you probably didn’t have to do this…
So. One table. One layer of primer, four five coats of black semi-gloss and two coats of poly later and we have this masterpiece
Now I just need to remove the rest of the skirt and replace each leg one by one. I got a little excited the other night and hammered off the skirt that is attached to the middle leaf. Looking pretty good so far…
Well maybe a little longer than that….but (drumroll please) TA-DAAA!
To say that i am IN LOVE with this table would be a severe understatement. Once it has gone through its requisite 3 day drying period we will throw it back in the eating room and I will take a new picture with the NEW chairs.
I know…baited breath and all that.
