Transform: Indoor table to Outdoor table

When Dave and I moved into this house, I purchased a pub table for the downstairs…..sadly it got little to no use.  Recently, I decided to try and re-purpose it as an outdoor table.  I did quite a bit of research to find the right way to do the transformation.  The pub table is all fake pressed wood and totally meant for indoor use.  There are so many tutorials out there and each one is a little different in what they think is imperative.  I have the Valspar paint left over from painting (still not put up) but I needed some supplies from our local Lowe’s…..mainly the primer…..and while I was there, I found the Rust-oleum NeverWet…….Can’t wait to see if it works out.

IMG_2342I started with a quick sand to rough up the surface of the fake wood that is the pub table and then put a layer of the Zinsser primer on.

IMG_2319 I put 3 coats of the Valspar exterior paint over the primer (and I actually followed the directions on timing).  The Rust-oleum is a 2-parter, base coat and top coat.  It is a little rough as a top coat, but if it helps repel water, I am all for it.

IMG_2339Yup – can’t wait to have a get together and use this baby.
