Mark had to leave today on a business trip, so it was an ideal time for me to get going on a project I had been wanting to do for some time. He was OK with me doing it, and with him being away, I can work long hours, not cook, and get it done quickly. Like a lot of us, we have an oak dining room set from the 1980's. I have wanted to paint it for a long time, but just did not have the guts to do it. Well, call me gutsy! I now have the table primed(except for the top...I will leave it natural) and 4 chairs primed and 4 to go! I will be painting it a cream, then wiping a stain over it lightly, and then sealing it with a satin, waterbase sealer. The pics are in order of how I started until I finished a little bit ago. If I get a second wind, I might just try to get the other four done tonight. My next post will show you the next step. Stay tuned and I will keep you posted!!! HEHE!!!!!
