I've gone a little crazy lately with homemade cleaners. As in, I have now made homemade laundry detergent, dishwasher deteregent, Febreeze, tub cleaner, Windex, and Oxyclean. Our house has never been so clean! Erin is so over it right now. I think I've come home everyday for the last week with a new recipe!
Needless to say, I haven't been doing a lot of major projects lately. I did manage to paint our old kitchen table on my day off though.
It had a veneer top with a really weird finish.
Erin and I really wanted a desk area for work. This table was too big for the kitchen area and since we have a new old table there now I decided to make this one our desk.
I primed it with Kilz and then painted it with a couple coats of Martha Stewart's Pink Sea Salt. Then I finished it with a coat of polyurethane. It all went downhill here. I learned the hard way you can't use polyurethane on white paint; it turns a not-so-lovely yellow. So I got to do the whole thing over again and finish it with polyacrylic.
The guest bedroom is a little on the small side, so I mounted half the table to the wall to save on space. I think I'm going to really like it in here.
