This was a total impulse DIY…
I figured if I painted it, then maybe I wouldn’t hate it so much. Here’s what I did.
I started off by sanding the table down. A nice smooth surface is easier to work with.
I filled the little outline with hot glue because I didn’t want the paint to clump up in there. Then I gots ta paintin. I should’ve taken a lil trip to Home Depot to get chalk paint, but since this came out of nowhere I ended up using Krylon spray paint. It took three cans to give the table a nice grey coating.
I gave the table about four hours to dry completely. When it was dry I picked the hot glue out of the cracks and went back in with the sander. I didn’t want to the table to have a glossy finish, I wanted it roughed up.
