Edited: The ISO on my camera was cranked way up to 1600. No wonder the pictures weren't turning out. I have now changed some of them and they are a little clearer.
Do you remember the before of my $5.00 garage sale table?
I don't usually use primer, but decided it might be best on this makeover. I used gray spray primer.
My only regret is that I didn't take a picture of the finished table outside. I have heard others say that black painted furniture is hard to photograph. Well, now I can attest to that fact.
Here is an up close of the finish. It is satin paint, though the flash makes it look shiny. It is not that shiny in person. This is the best I could do of the finish up close.
Awww, who is that masked man in the picture?
This is our sweet dog Max. This is the first picture I took and there he was, right in the way. That's ok--I love him.
For now this will be my computer table. It will get moved elsewhere eventually, but it works well, and hey, you can't beat a desk for $5.00.
I added this beautiful little piece of pottery that Victoria found for me at Goodwill last week. Isn't the color just beautiful?
Underneath, to cover some cords and the box that keeps lighting from frying our computer I place this woven bag. I found this a Goodwill a few weeks ago and was really surprised that is was only $2.40. The handles are leather and it is nice and substantial.
Hope you enjoyed the makeover.
Until next time!
