two errands
errand number one:
yesterday, i painted this table. it is an old pine pottery barn piece. i thought the hardware would never come off, but i managed somehow. today, i will hunt for new handles...so exciting!

errand number two:

i will purchase another jubilee oyster panel from the cottage chic store. i bought one panel several months ago for the master bedroom and contemplated cutting it into two panels. but i have decided to go ahead and get a second. i think i will take a picture of mine, as i don't think this one does it justice. they really are beautiful. they are rachel ashwell and i have to say i was pleasantly shocked by the quality. they are fully lined and SO heavy.

the paint color is almond. it is called 'cabinet coat' paint...some new product that is to give wood a "factory finish."

when you paint furniture, do you add a coat of poly also? I've done that but it ends up making the piece yellow, so I think I'm doing something wrong.

for this i did not need a poly coat after using the cabinet coat, but whenever i use water based paint, i always add poly. it does yellow the piece, but i like that most of the time. if you want to avoid the poly finish, use an oil based paint or try the cabinet coat.
