This was a small project but not without its challenges.
Here’s the beginning. Well, not truly but close. I had already wiped the cobwebs off from sitting is my aunt’s barn and did minor sanding. This little table was and is going to be her husband’s night stand. Hopefully I will get some photos when it’s moved into their newly redone room because of this.
My aunt bought a sample size of Behr’s black paint. I rough sanded, primed, painted and distressed. Then finished with wax.
My challenge with this little table was I had a very small section where the paint kept peeling off. I think it’s because I was getting a little over confident in my abilities (beginner’s mistake!) and wasn’t taking my time. I was finally able to correct it. Though I’m not sure what I did differently other than be patient and take my time!
There are many benefits to refinishing furniture on the farm- my son loves it, having little chores to do while waiting, chatting with Stacey and just plain old fun. But, with farm life comes dust and dirt which is challenging when making something black photo ready! Believe it or not, it’s much more challenging than white. I guess that’s why somebody told me long ago never to buy a black car!
