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. 

I'm joining White Wednesday at Faded Charm
