I needed a solution to my junked up disaster of a staircase.
Items are placed on the steps in hope that the clutter will delightfully make it’s way back upstairs to it’s proper home.
Now, remember this side table I found on my virgin venture into a thrift store?
You all had some great ideas, so I took your advice and…
Check out his transformation!
Now each child has their own basket where mom will JOYFULLY toss their clutter laying around!
Doin’ a happy dance! …uh huh, uh huh….dance with me….
Ok, well then walk with me, I’ll show you each step of it’s transformation.
Start with a good scrub down…..ewwww, gross.
I hate sanding so I love to use this water based primer from Kilz.
No sanding required.
Yes, I’m painting this in my foyer…..it’s cold in the garage!!!!
I used the roller for the priming and the brush for the paint.
Lightly sand between coats with a 220 grit sanding block.
The table received 3 coats of paint,
then the edges were distressed with with 100 grit sandpaper (my 1st attempt at distressing…ever!)
A topcoat of Polycrylic for protection finished the table.
Once their baskets are filled each child can carry their basket upstairs to put away,
with smiling faces of course…
Hey, a mom can dream!
