In our early years of marriage, with pharmacy school loans looming over our heads, Kent and I opted to by a cheap table from Target to meet our basic needs. Through our many moves, it's hung on fairly well with the exception of the veneer chipping off the top and edges resulting in the odd sliver in the hands and thighs should you be careless enough rub against it. Since going through a painting craze, I thought I'd paint the whole thing, legs and all, but wondered when I'd ever get around to it. After one sliver too many, I decided I had enough time in the morning to sand the top, prime it and paint it.
So the thinking was I'd do just a little here and a little there. I'm planning on putting some shellac stuff on the top to take off the tacky feeling. I'm kinda like just the top black ....I might do the seats black too, but then again I might not. Am I just being lazy or practical? ;0)
