I have been looking for a new dining room set forever, and haven't been able to find one that I like that will fit in the space we have (oh, and one we can afford). Finally, after looking in store after store, I decided to buy a quart of black epoxy paint and paint my Windsor chairs and the legs of my oblong table. We always keep a table cloth on the table, so I didn't see a reason to paint the top. What a transformation! It looks fantastic!
Eddie and I spent Sunday afternoon painting while listening to the Rams game. Ugh! What a bad day to be a Rams fan! I got black paint all over my Rams T-shirt, hair, hands and face. I had streaks across my face and looked like I had cat whiskers. Ordinarily, I"d say, "no big deal", but I found out when I tried to wash it off, IT DIDN'T WASH OFF! Thank God, I didn't have to work on Monday. I scrubbed and scrubbed my skin until it was red and irritated. I even tried nail polish remover. No luck. I wasn't about to try mineral spirits or gasoline (both were suggested). Fortunately, after my shower this morning, most of the black paint is gone.
I took a vacation day today with plans to get my yard and house ready for winter. All I really got done was playing with Christian, my grandson. I can't resist his handsome smile and his chatter. I love it when he talks to me. He didn't even make fun of my cat whiskers (most of which were gone by the end of the day).
I can't wait to have you see the transformation of the dining room! What a difference a quart of paint can make.
