While Dale worked on running electric (up the ladder, into the attic, hey, turn off the power, back down, repeat), I reworked a table that we had in the living room. I actually got this table when I was living in apartments, almost 20 years ago, I pulled it out of a dumpster! I went to throw my trash out and I saw it down in there - I had to climb in and drag it out. It's been a handy little table, about 3 years ago I painted it black to cover the badly stained top - but it needed to be freshened up.
So while I was in between helping out with electrical, I sanded the top smooth, sanded edges to give it a weathered look, painted a compass rose on the top, sanded that a big to age it, then gave it a nice coat of stain and several coats of poly.
It looks so much nicer now!
I sanded it all smooth, and then primed it and gave it two coats of nice white enamel. For a finishing touch, I painted "Bath" on the top panel, which will only show when the door is closed.
Well, we didn't get the pocket door done this weekend, but it's the next project on the list. And the door is ready to go!
Oh, and see all those baby shoes on the shelf? Those will go in my bathroom, too.
