Evenings I would go down and put a layer or two of paint on.
One thing we have learned from all our projects is that we take a lintless rag and put the paint on thinly. We like the finish. Since this was going to Jonathan's room I stayed more to the masculine side of our mistinted paint stash. I liked this army green so there are 4 coats of this on the table. The issue is the walls in his room are two shades of green so it couldn't stay that way. Then I used a red on top but again it didn't look right.
Then one or two light washes of the blue. I made sure it wasn't perfect. I liked having the edges show the brown. It gives it a more farm table look. Also once it gets really used it won't look as bad as if I did a pristine job. It also holds up to Lilly climbing on it to get into the crib with Jonathan.
Not that she ever goes in there to jump up and down with him.
