the table is reborn...

I paid a grand total of $20 dollars for a table and 4 solid chairs on trademe but the old lacquer was damaged and it was totally ugly.
I tried scraping and sanding back the top and painted it black but just doing the top was a nightmare.I couldn't face the rest.
...enter white stick-to-anything zinzzer paint, a couple of days on the lawn and its a different set of furniture.
I knew I liked it once and now I can remember why.
before.
 after.

  4. I think you did a great job on painting and I love the white. I visited New Zealand about 20 years ago and thought it was beautiful. I live in Georgia, USA.
