After spending the morning gluing, filling chips and sanding my thrift store credenza I was ready to paint. I bought this veneered teak credenza (below) a couple of months ago for $39 and was finally ready to work on it. Unfortunately the top and some edges were too badly damaged to just rub in a coat or two of Danish oil to bring it back to life. My next plan was to paint it gloss back and restore the beautiful teak doors. Doors done and one coat painted. Another 12 hours before the next coat. That was until this afternoon’s very heavy downpour. “Fine,” I thought as I walked away as a storm brewed. “It’s under cover.” I took this photo to show Kim and was really pleased with myself. 30 minutes later a high wind blew rain all over my hard work. I guess there’s always tomorrow to sand and redo the first coat. Then only 2 more after that…..argh! So no photos this week of it in my dining room. There’s always next week.
