Quick Paint Project: Metal Table

When a photo recently revealed some clutter at the back of the house I began a reorganization.

The blue metal table has faded over the years — it was originally white, spray painted blue.

I pulled out our blue metal table which over the years has faded.

I started the painting at the edges and center of the round table.

In my stash there was a can of navy spray paint — almost a full can.

The metal table is much improved.

In about 10 minutes the color and shine of the table was restored.

The freshly-cleaned chairs and newly-painted tables.

Making a seating area near the garden with chairs and table pulled away from the back of the house has decluttered a small area.

Do you refurbish or replace?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

    1. Thanks, Barbara. I, too, love spray paint. Or any paint really. It’s the cheapest and easiest “fix” for many problems. Jo
