I found this great table at the curb, two blocks from my house. It was heavy and crazy big, I couldn’t lift it let alone shove it into more car (since I couldn’t lift it but it wouldn’t have fit anyways). About half an hour and two blocks later, I had it at my house.Curbside Find

I took the center part out and turned it from rectangular, long to a square table. Then I sanded the top and spray painted the bottom with favorite color blue 😉

I painted one coat white, then sanded the top because I wanted the beautiful wood to shine through. Then taped to and sprayed the golden stripes first. Then I added blues and grays to the remaining stripes. Finally, painted two coats of polyurethane for protection and durability.
