If this card table was in better shape I would just keep it the way it is.
For some reason I seem to be attracted to vintage colors that look similar to what escapes my children when they are feeling ill.
Gross, but true.
Unfortunately, this baby is in bad shape.
Then I took a closer look at the small tear, and somehow it became a bigger tear (accidentally intentionally) and then I just ripped the sucker apart.
Ahhh. That’s better.
Underneath was a lovely clean layer of masonite board.
Nothin’ a little primer can’t fix.
And two Dream Bars. They make every day a good day.
Which is why they should be eaten every day.
Not that I do that.
One paint brush, two coats of primer, and three articles of clothing ruined by a certain someone.
Next up: two layers of turquoise paint. After it was dry I got to work with a stencil I cut out of a cereal box.
Corn Flakes to be exact, ’cause I know I am going to get like a bajillion people asking me, “Dude, what kind of cereal box should I use?!?”
Or maybe not.
This is a quatrafoil pattern, available from the loveley Jones Design Company HERE. She actually did a double layer but I am…um… lazy for lack of a better word.
Purdy, no? For the lighter color I just added a little white to the turquoise paint I already had.
Ta-da! Let’s see if from another angle…
Love it! Here’s a few more shots…
Dude, where did she come from???
Hey, Mom! Take a picture of me!
Darlin’ I am trying to take a picture of the table.
Bahahaha! You can’t ’cause I am in the way fool!
Well I will just shoot it from above then…
One hour later…
I Got it! Hahaha!
No, I got you man!
Lily! If you don’t get out of the way…
Hey! Hey Mom! Look at my arms! You can’t see the table! Hahaha!
Lily! Get out of the way! And don’t you dare flash me those adorable…
She did it.
She flashed me the dimples.
All right! FINE! Let’s take your picture.
Wait a sec…
Where did she go?
Yeah. I have had enough with this table.
Where’s the freakin’ Dream Bars?Pin It
