Two of the projects I worked on last week were some I rescued from 2 different sales I went to. The shabby avocado table came from an auction. It was hand made and needed love. I paid 2.00 for it and was happy as a lark to get it. I had to scrap all the paint off which I normally don't do I usually use bonding primer. The paint on this desk was peeling and I didn't want to take a chance that it would scab up (ewww ugly word usage) and bite me later so I scrapped and I think I even burned up a few calories in the process which is always a plus for me! lol
I think they go together like peas and carrots!
