This is what I started with. I was going to fib and say I had JUST picked this table and chairs up at a yard sale, but I figured my real life friends would out me. Yep, I’ve had these puppies (in this condition) for several years. Hmm, this is usually where I would say not to judge me, but in this case…judge away. I deserve it! They were awful!
Mini Rant: You will not see me do too many projects with oil-based enamel paint. I hate how long the paint takes to dry. Seems like it always takes a million coats for good coverage, and I hate, hate, hate the clean up. I will totally admit I threw away my brush when I was finished.
Now this is the couch I started with. I did pick it up at a yard sale. I was too embarrassed to take a pic of the rotting cushions and the moldy plywood base. They were quickly tossed before pictures. Yuck!
