How to beach a table





How to beach an unbeachy table , first look for a table with something going on , details become better when painted , then clean with TSP , prime, paint , sand away to allow dark finish to peak through , buff to soften the feel , and enjoy .
This colour is Pratt and Lambert "BAY" a soft pale yet bright green.

Pretty!

Oh, how I need to find some cheap tables to "beachify" for our beach house!

Love it, dying to try. Thanks for the how to. I'm unsure what buffing is though...fine sand paper or some kind of cloth? Thanks for any more info!

Brilliant! Almost time to dig out my beachy-inspired jar fillers... but not quite. There is still ice on the pool.
