Welcome To The 73rd Masterpiece Monday!



Remember my recent post about my new free rug? I called it sisal, but it's really jute.  

Anywhoothe new rug inspired me to finally paint the coffee table.

It was a project I was going to do last Summer. Many of my "Summer" projects have turned into Fall, Winter and Spring projects! Let's see if I can finish them all up before it's Summer again. Heehee.





Wow, I wish I hadn't put it off! It looks sooo much better, eh?



 I used free paint from the recycling center. Behr bright white high gloss. The same paint I'm using to paint the kitchen. Yep.




I painted it in my craft room with the door closed, so no kitties would walk on it before it dried. 
I used three coats.



Then I hand sanded the edges with extra ruff sand paper to distress it.

Painting and distressing your large coffee table and adding the jute rug made your sitting room so very inviting, so very relaxed and inviting. Thanks for hosting.

Wow, what a difference. I love the new white color! You have inspired me. I have a long sofa table I bought at a yard sale for $20. Been going to paint it white since last Fall. I am doing it tomorrow! Thanks for the party.
Hugs,
Jann

Ohmygosh, Mary! I LOVE, love, love the coffee table! You did an outstanding job on the finish. It's distressed perfectly... in just the right places. I have a few pieces desperately in need of a makeover that I'd be more than happy to send your way. LOL Thanks so much for hosting another awesome Masterpiece Monday! Hope you have a great week! ~Mary

The table looks stunning! We have one that was my husband's mothers. It's massive though, and I don't know where it will fit, unfortunately. It would look fabulous painted white, you've inspired me. I just hope it doesn't have to stay out in the barn for the next 10 years! Thanks for hosting, Marcia
