DIY Project Five- Painting an Outdoor Table

I bought this folding, solid pine, unfinished table at Value Village for $4.99.



What you will need:

- table (preferrably unfinished- otherwise you have to sand down the stain/paint)
- sand paper
- paintbrush
- paint (I used a exterior paint & primer in one)

How to do it:

Similar to DIY Project Four- Updating Old Chairs, give the entire table a light sanding (including the underside) and using the paintbrush, prime and paint the table (2 coats should do it). What's important when painting something that will be exposed to rain is to make sure you paint everywhere in order to keep moisture out.
