When I first purchased the table, the top was off and it had a musty smell. So I washed it really well, sprayed with Lysol and put baking soda in the drawers. And it sat like that for months in my house.
So when the project was resurrected from the abandoned project list a few weeks ago, we first needed to fill the wholes in the top with wood filler. We used JB Weld Company KwikWood Epoxy Putty.
After the wood filler dried, we sanded really well to make smooth.
Then we primed using Kilz Original spray paint. One can was exactly the right amount.
After the primer, Michael screwed the top to the base of the table. Then we painted two coats of the Quiet Moment. I wanted some fun knobs since I didn't get the Youthful Coral. So I went with the Caricature Knob from Anthropologie which was a little bit of a splurge for me but I only need two.
I am pleased with the end result. As a recap here is the before...
I am still working on the stool. I got this stool for FREE from a family friend's house. It is the perfect size and I would like to recover in this fabric that I already have from Garden Ridge.
I got one quote for $200 to cover the top and make a skirt. I just couldn't rationalize that. I would really like to be able to do it myself but it may be more than my skill set will allow. I have done a little research online so hopefully I will figure something out. If you have suggestions, I would love them!
