Re-painted Console Table and More

Ya'll, I've got my love of painting back! I was having so much fun last night in the garage...I've recently started listening to Pandora on my phone...on the LL Cool J station. Yep. I'm that girl. And I'm pretty sure my neighbors can see dancing with a paintbrush me from their second floor through the windows in my garage. And I don't even care.

First up, we have this lovely table that was formerly gray with dark wax on the top. It was nice, but the person who bought this from Shayne wanted it in a cream color. If you live in weather where it's been negative temps, I need to recommend liquid sandpaper. It is FAR better than dragging your piece outside to sand when the windchill is -10. Just sayin.

 Before: Looking at this before picture, I realize it didn't capture the true before because they don't look that different. LOL

And I had to add this little gem too. Shayne brought this to me and just wanted one light coat of dry brush. I can't post the final after pic because I don't do upholstry, but I think this chair is SO cool as is!!

I am seriously drooling over this chair. I need help.

Love how both of these turned out! Hope you are all finishing projects and staying warm!

I adore how rustic and primitive the blue chairs look just as it is. Maybe you could find a cushion that fits it and call it a day?

I'm drooling over that chair too. LOve it! This weather completely sucks for painting. I am going to try the liquid sand. I was outside the other day sanding w/ gloves on and found my fingers numb within 5 minutes. I always have my ipod on when painting and love pandora too. Painting w/ music is a total brain break.
