Found a great idea online to create a cute dog bed from an old end table. FINALLY found the old table - really ratty and beat up, but that's okay. Actually found a second (very different) table about the same time and decided to use both of them - after all, my love seat does have two ends.
Anyway, thought I'd have to wait a bit to start work on them but yesterday turned out to be a pretty, and relatively warm day - so I dashed out to Lowe's, got my supplies and got started.
It's been drying overnight and now son has switch the tables and I've just finished putting prime on the second one this afternoon. Then they need to cure for 7 days before first coat of paint is applied.
