When I brought it home orange was my first and only color choice, because for some reason, that color just works for me right now. I gave it a really good sanding with medium grit sandpaper to get rid of the shine, and also gave it a good scrubbing. I really believe these are very important steps, when I don’t do them, bad things happen.
I used rustolium primer and paint, the color was Orange in Satin, and against my normal rules opted to spray it instead of rolling it on. If this table was bigger, I would have used a roller.
This is a pretty simple makeover project and took me about an afternoon to finish. The hardest part is waiting for the paint to dry! I have used it as a plant stand and it would work great next to a big comfy chair to hold a lamp and drink.
Have you had any good scores at goodwill lately?
