Surprising myself, the first item on my 30 before 30 list that I can check off is…
7. Repaint an item of Furniture.
There are a few things on the list (like getting something I have created framed) that I was already intending to do but added for a little extra motivation. Number 7 wasn’t actually one of them.
Earlier this month my housemate moved out, leaving me with a living area that looked like this:
A tad empty. :)
I had acquired an armchair and couch from my friend Mike (who had acquired them from friends Lucy and Chris, who had got them from his parents…) but I was missing not having a place to put my morning coffee down on.
So, the other week I finagled an old coffee table from Mum and Dad. I thought it was being stored under the house, only realising after I’d asked for it that the table was being used on the veranda. Oops. But they still let me have it. :)
However, an old, varnished cane coffee table wasn’t quite what I had in mind. That’s where a can of primer and 3 cans of White Knight Royal Blue spray paint comes in.
One task down, 29 to go.
