Busy in the Garage

 First coat of home-made chalk paint on the half-round table...
(Plaster of Paris mixed into regular paint)
See previous post for details.
 ^ Added some dark wax to highlight the grooves
after a second coat of paint.

 Finished two more chalk boards utilizing old frames we had on hand.

Getting There

 From a table discarded in pieces by a roadside
(half pictured above; the damaged "apron" below)
 I began to fashion a half-round table.

 Below:  Ready for sanding and finishing!
Stay tuned.
