Extra Seating in an Unique Way

Extra Seating in an Unique Way

A few ladies and I rented a house at the Outer Banks last year.  At that house, I noticed they had a coffee table with 4 seating pods underneath the table top.  I thought, "Wow, that is super cool".  I knew I would love to find one of those and so the hunt began.  I checked out Sanford Area Habitat for Humanity store's FB page, and there "it" was!!  I knew with the great Fusion Paint Products I have in stock and the desire to make it a showpiece, that this was the one to choose!  All projects need a good inspection and a good cleaning, so that was Step #1.  Fusion Mineral Paint offers a TSP Alternative that is a great cleaner!  I removed all the seating bases and padding/material (there were many), and started fresh with new bases, new foam, batting and a great print that will work great with this set.  A good spray of paint (several coats) and they are ready to get their "tops" on them.  I went back and used Fusion Minteral Paint (in the color of Picket Fence) on the wicker pods so that the white is a true match to the table base.  I am not an upholsterer by any means, so hubby will always need to step in for that part.  I am fine with that!  The table had a slick veneer finish on it, but that doesn't worry me!  It will be scuff sanded with 120 grit sandpaper and followed by 150 grit. I uesd a base color of Fusion's Blue Pine paint on the top and finished with  Ebony Stain & Finishing Oil.  The base is in Fusion's Picket Fence paint with an Extender (added to paint for longer open time).  The Stain & Finishing Oil is great because you don't need an additional top coat.  

You can find these products here in my store!  I am loving the end result!
