On Starting Over

I bought this stand a while back to use as a TV stand.  

I don't know what it was finished with before.  I sanded it.  I decided to paint it a funky green with one if those no prime no sand chalk paints. 

It was peeling quite badly. I was not going for a chippy rustic look.  I did not like the finish.  So I scraped and sanded it off.  

Here's where it ended up, with a Martha Stewart color in Behr's Ultra paint and primer in one.

Hi, Sherrie, for some reason I am not getting notifications of comments. I don't know about stripping to wood. The last furniture I stripped was 25 years ago. :-). Hopefully they have less caustic solutions than what was available then.
