Painting a Table of Sunflowers
One of the things I do on a regular basis, is volunteer in the Hunter Park Garden House (green house) here in Lansing, Michigan.
There are 3 of these long tables that are used for a variety of tasks. Two of them were painted a couple of years ago, but this one was still black.
One day this past December, another volunteer, the shift manager, and I were talking about this table, and I stated that I was interested in painting it. The other volunteer then offered to buy a Michaels gift card so that I could buy paint and supplies.
