I have 2 of these cute little Ikea tables. I love the look of black furniture. BUT I do not like to dust. These black tables literally show dust 5 minutes after they are dusted.
I couldn’t get the drawer out, so I simply placed a bag over it.
I painted a coat of Kilz on the top of the table.
I then gave it a coat of “free” Glidden paint.
Did you get some of this last fall when they were offering it for free? I had friends and family give me theirs! This is “crisp linen white”.
What you do NOT see in this picture is DUST! 🙂
I love the way the white and the black look together.
I applied 2 coats of the Glidden paint, then 3 thin coats of Polycrylic.
You can see that I lightly distressed the edges.
I spent all day Tuesday cleaning on the garage. I got a lot done, but I’m still a long way from being finished. I have all my spare projects and lumber in the yard and on the driveway. I really see no way of getting it all back in neatly. I have a shed, one of those barn type buildings. I plan to work on that today (Wednesday). I think it’s all pointless. I will notice a difference, but I don’t think anyone else will. They will just look at it in amazement and think to themselves “why doesn’t she clean that up?” hahahah
