We headed to Porter Paints where David's nephew, Josh works to see what he would recommend for a good paint for our helper stand. If you missed the post where David built Max a helper stand you can find it here. I read up and was going to get an oil based paint to eliminate brush strokes and provide durability.
David's been wanting to try out this HVLP paint sprayer for some reason because we are avid painters (not).
Finished product (for now-I'd like to go back and sand a few areas).
Remember when we got this outdoor couch at a garage sale for $30? Well we've been wanting to cover the cushions in a nicer fabric since the current cushions are pretty gross and worn (hard to see from photo). Well, recovering takes a lot of time and money that I didn't want to spend now. So guess what we're doing.
Shout out to Mom who finished covering the coffee table with batting, padding (like in fireplace covers for kids) and fabric. The original plan was to make it safer for the kids who kept bumping in to the sharp edges. We all love the cover so much that now we're afraid of them dirtying it up! She did scotch guard it, but we're thinking of putting clear plastic on it lol. Hope you enjoyed our little projects we've been finishing. I guess we've been busy!
