Happy Friday All !
This table is one those funny stories that will be a treasured memory for this frugal girl. We were on the way to the courthouse and saw this trash sitting on the side of the road. But I didn't say anything to my husband as we were getting close to our appointment. And forgot about it for about 3 hours since we were busy inside the court. When we came out we drove down the same road again and this curbside trash was still there. You can guess my reaction. I asked my husband to stop the car and turn around. At first, he was not sure about it. Again, he can't say no to his stubborn wife about digging through someone trash. We asked the lady who was cleaning the yard nicely about the trash by her curb side ( we knew they must be FREE : )
I just took the table, basket, and the rod curtain. I was thinking to go wild with this table. I haven't try any bright color before. I went to Home Depot and bought this sample paint by Behr it's called Sunray Yellow. The table still in a very good condition and sturdy. I didn't do lot of work on it. Just sand paper and clean all the hardware.
I put about 3 coats of paint without primer. Basically, I used the whole can of Behr sample. I was so shocked how it turned out. It was so bright just like Sunray :) I spray painted the hardware with bronze color.
After the paint dried I apply clear wax to finished it up and buff it. I took pictures and post it on craigslist to be on the market. And someone already claimed this Happy Sunray table to their house. From this project I learned not to afraid to try something new. And I'm glad I did.
