Hello everyone!

It's almost December and I’ve just started my Christmas shopping. I’m a bit late to it this year, how about you? Have you begun shopping  yet, or are you almost done? I think each year it gets busier and changes.

I had a customer come look at my sideboard and at the time I had matching tables. She saw them and asked if I would paint them for her. We discussed colours and she decided on Vanilla Frosting with espresso wood tops.

I got started right away on them. First I sanded each table so they  were de-glossed and scuffed. I then cleaned them with a vinegar and lemon mix. I primed the tables with two coats of primer because I knew this was a light colour that was being used.

Once I had done two coats of primer, I started to paint. I did about 3 coats of paint to be sure I had good coverage. I painted the hardware while the paint dried. The legs that I had ordered were raw wood so I painted those as well.

I also made wood planks underneath so that I could attach the legs. These tables didn’t come with legs so I pre-ordered them.

Once they were on I made the tops and stained them in Espresso stain, then sprayed the entire pieces with varnish.

Once that was done I attached the hardware, and that was it for these lovelies!
