Summer Spruce Up: New Table Painted

You may remember this table from the before pictures of my exterior front spruce up post. Yes, it's a sad sight. This table was a free find by my brother, along with a set of wicker chairs that we've since given to another. We kept the table only because it fit on the porch with the wicker rocker. And I don't "fit" as in belonged or complemented. I mean it was the right size. The wood wrap continues to fall off every year and I am tired of trying to make it look presentable.
I was on a mission to find a new table that would complement the wicker rocker and found this one on clearance at Hobby Lobby.
Not only was it the right size, but I liked the rustic, not-so-perfect look.
I wasn't concerned about the color because I figured I'd probably paint it anyway. From yesterday's post, you know that it was a little bit of a challenge deciding which color to go with, but I ended up going with a bright blue color called Lagoon from Rust-oleum.
I cleaned the table up to remove any dirt and went to work spraying. And here it is painted bright blue.
It certainly makes a statement on the freshly painted porch floor.
Things are really coming together on this project. There are a couple things left including the flower pot reveal and sewing new cushions for the rocking chair. More to come soon.
