Due to its exemplary service record (and attractive curvy legs), it was promoted to the dining room. To prepare for its new duties, it got a makeover. Sanding the top to remove the old paint was quick and easy, but I was dreading painting because of all the curves and indentations on the legs. Then, a stroke of good luck! I was looking through paint chips at Lowe's and saw that the "Sumptuous Purple" chip had a little note that said "also available in spray paint." Sweet! Spray paint would be MUCH easier for the curvy legs, and I could use matching latex paint for the flat surfaces.
This was my first time trying Valspar paint. The spray paint was satisfactory - the spray pattern produced a lot of fine mist, resulting in less-than-stellar coverage and too much overspray. Not a bad choice, but I still prefer Rust-Oleum Painter's Choice for spray paints. The Valspar latex paint was good; I would use it again.
And the Sumptuous Purple color? Gorgeous! I love it. I think I found my perfect shade of purple. :D (Of course, my camera refuses to capture said perfect shade. I had to heavily adjust the colors in this photo. The floor isn't actually orange and the wall isn't actually pink.)
This is a good representation of the true color (at least on my screen):
The table will enjoy wearing the bat tablecloth I picked up last October. :) Now to add candles, a centerpiece and so forth...
Total cost of this project was about $19. I paid $15 for a quart of latex paint (I used maybe 1/3 of it) and $4 for a can of spray paint. The tablecloth was $8.
