having fun with children's table and chairs
"i've very recently opened a home daycare, and had purchased the $19.99 latt kid’s table and chairs. they got scratched up and fingerprinted and jam'ed and such pretty quickly due to the unfinished wood. so, i got artistic with them.
first, i spray painted everything blue. then i sponge painted on a bit of purple. then the golden castles and the freehand artwork. i then put on a few coats of polyacrylic, but i wasn't very happy with the protection level on the recessed pieces as the original surface i painted on was that slick white pressboard and i worried it would scratch. i bought some acrylic epoxy and finished it up.
these photos don't capture the depth of the different colors so well, but the general idea comes through."
