Well, I was hoping to do this all in one post, but this blasted table is taking FOREVER to finish!!
And then I started painting it Cloud White by Benjamin Moore in their Aura paint (matte finish).
Ok so… has anyone used Aura? I have painted furniture white before using normal latex paint and have found 2 coats enough. I currently have at least 3 on there, with possibly 1 more coat needed. Is it just me? Just my table? Or is it the paint? I picked Aura because it takes 2 weeks less to cure before I can poly over it, and it is low VOC, considering we will eat off it. But seriously…. this table feels like it will never be finished!!!!
After these pics I sanded it down again and added another coat. I do like how it is looking… I just hope the paint ends up smooth enough, it’s hard to tell in a dark basement – compared the the sunny kitchen it will be standing in eventually!!
