I’ve been painting a lot of various pieces of furniture this week and my kitchen table, which I painted white last year, was screaming at me, “I’M STAINED AND CHIPPED AND UGLY! FIX MEEEE!!!” Yes, sadly…my table which was actually quite the nightmare to paint, didn’t last very long in its painted state. I guess it was not meant to be painted. It chipped, and not in a cute, chippy way, but more in an obvious ugly hole way. And then every time my kids colored with markers on the table, the marker ended up on the table and stained the white. I could usually get it out with a mixture of bleaching chemicals but it was a hassle to do that all the time. I seriously don’t know what I was thinking with a white table. So I started to strip it with a heat gun but then found that I could literally just peel up the latex paint and rip off sheets of the paint. Even my 3-year-old helped me and we stripped it in about a half hour. But then there was the oil based primer and the existing stain color from before. So I sanded and sanded and sanded. Now I’m deciding on stain color.
I wanna try the new Premium Wood Finish line by Cabot. I’ve never tried it, but after all the staining I’ve done in the last year or so, I’ve been intrigued by several things about this particular wood finish–
- It doesn’t require a conditioner–that is great news, since I always love a step saved.
- It is water based and seals and stains in one–another step saved AND easy cleanup with soap and water.
- It is available in a wide variety of colors and is made especially for wood. You can even tint it to get the exact shade of color you like. (Below is only a small selection of their wide variety of colors.)
