Who’s getting ready for playoffs?

If you’re hosting the parties this season – don’t break the bank to make your party festive.
Bronco table

Pick any old table from your home, garage, grandmas place or your local Goodwill. By unanimous decision, I had to pick the Bronco’s (Go Denver – cough cough!) I can’t say everyone in the building was on-board but majority rules.

Touchdown!

The hardest part of re-vamping this table was making sure I did the reverse stencil properly. Simply print the imagine you’d like, cut it out and practice on a piece of cardboard. It helps to find an image in the reverse color (white to black). This may ensure you cut the right pieces out. Also, if you’re using spray paint I suggest printing on paper with one adhesive side. This will make for better lines and a simpler process (less mistakes). You could also use an adhesive spray (found at a hobby store). My table needed a little sanding first (150 grit may have been too much). necessities

In this process I learned something about Scott’s Liquid Gold Cleaner and Preservative. At least for this wood, Liquid Gold had created a scratch resistant surface. How I found out: I had used Liquid Gold on only half of the table the week prior (before and after photos). When I began sanding the table by hand, rather than sander it was quite responsive to the sand paper on the half that did not have Liquid Gold. When I got to the other half which had Liquid Gold, the sand paper hardly touched the table – I was in awe. After cleaning one half of the table with Liquid Gold, it had moisturized it enough to become scratch-resistant. I did eventually sand that half of the table, but my arm was very tired!

Enjoy the rest of regular season and Happy Holidays from everyone at Scott’s Liquid Gold!
