I didn't have time to makeover the iron legs and I will get to caring for the rest of this soon but for now it says " I'm ReLoved" Aunt Rosie would be proud and I'll always look at it and chuckle about her stepping in the paint bucket when I was little.
I painted the top with Two coats of black. No sanding no priming. Let dry for about 2 hours. I then used a French Script stencil from http://www.wallmasque.com.
Then I let it dry for a few more hours..mainly because I had a million things to do.
Then....I....that is it it was done! Woot Woot move on to the other messes in the house.
