Status Update: Dining Table, Painting, Black & White Trim
Monday, November 9th, 2009
My table top arrived a few weeks ago from Louisiana, with my swing. Here it is propped up on its base, aren’t those primed walls in the background lovely? (oh and that mess of books on the floor, they’ve been there so long we’re creating a new look) We’ve been busy busy… I’ve been adding coats of Tung Oil (mixed with paint thinner) on this bad boy, a new coat every 2-3 days, 3-4 coats, it’s taking a while, you do the math. She’s looking pretty. I’m letting her dry out all week before I start with the English Wax I bought for her.
He told me last night, we’re never painting a house ourselves again. Ha! I know it’s a lot easier to pay someone, but it’s charming to put your love, sweat and hard work into your first home. He’s just going to have to tough out the kitchen, and two bedrooms/baths coming next. Since I have about 10 unfinished projects happening right now, I didn’t think twice about taking on another one! Tim finally realized that the carpet in both bedrooms is kinda ugly, wall to wall seagrass, here we come!
