Well it may cause global cooling, because hell will be freezing over, but I am going to attempt to paint this table and bench. I started out with the intention of sanding the top, staining and sealing it and then painting the base a dirty red. However after a little sanding it is apparent that it will be near impossible to remove all the finish off the table top. I have it all sanded and roughed up sufficiently to take a coat of paint. Now I need your help in choosing a saleable color. I have the matching bench which I will paint a sympathetic color and 3 chairs which will be offered for free to anyone who buys the table.
I’m a guy who has somehow fallen into the shabby world. A shabby chic world of shabotaged furniture and foo foo accessories. My stuff tends to be outside of the cottage without much chic, shabby or otherwise. My things are the hogs in this world of roses. Thus the title: Hogs and Roses. (Please look at my 1st post "Why Hogs and Roses?")
I want to be Henny Youngman, when I grow up. Take my wife -- please!
I enjoyed 7 years of marital bliss (17 years of marriage). I have been divorced forever. Love my role as curmudgeon, comedian, sage and advisor.
