Finishing Update

The Husbeast took Little Boy to Lowe's this morning for a Build & Grow clinic - if they have them in your area, take advantage of them!  They're great!  LB is 3.5 and with some help is able to do every project so far.  Plus, it's free and fun!  He has his little builder's apron they give them and after completing each project they get a patch to be sewn on.  So cute!

While they were gone I primed the base of the Console Table.  3 hours, it took!  Holy moly, I find that shocking.  If I weren't keeping the top stained I would have just used spray primer.   I'm debating spray poly for the base...or should I just use a satin finish paint and only poly the stained part?  I have no idea.  maybe I should seal up the top and spray paint the base?  It's too hard to choose!  Also, I am fine with a black base, but part of me wants to do it red or lime green or purple or something more interesting than basic black!  I'll be putting one last coat of stain on the ends and then giving everything till tomorrow to dry while I figure out how I want to do the base.

Here's where it is today -

And, in the interest of full disclosure about my Corner O' Cack, I took a pic of it yesterday -

Horrifying.  Just in time for Halloween!
