Try putting softpaws on your cat. You can do it yourself, or a vet can do it. Most pet stores sell them. Otherwise, you may have to do the table pad. Good luck!

2. What can I do with this glass dining room table?

Ask the landlord to remove it

3. I sanded a dining room table top but the stain is too grey, (I need brown) I can't sand it again, can I use another stain on top?

Yes, you can restain the table with a darker stain. Get a piece of scrap wood and use the stain you used on the table and then use that sample wood as a test piece for your choice of new stain so you know what the results will look like before you restain the table itself

if its a nice one like mine..new....we use placemats, pot holders and anything to keep it protected..we generally just wash it after dinner with warm soap and water...then pledge once a week

8. Temporary way to protect our dining room table from cat scratches?

I put a bed sheet on it. Then a sheet of plywood. Then a table cloth over that. If people are coming over I show the table top. Otherwise this plywood cut to fit is always on it with a table cloth. If you need to go out quick... Bed sheets on table and use some opened cardboard boxes and cover with something to hold it there.

9. How do I refinish my dining room table and chairs?

If they are varnished, rub down with fine wire wool, clean off any dust with a vacuum, then wipe with turps/white spirit. apply the varnish (a silk finish is nice) with a pad of lint free cloth like a bit of well washed sheet. My wife does it if she feels like doing it, D. I. Y er she aint!!!!!so easy.

10. I bought a dinning room table the sales said it was Solid Mahogany , i found out later it was not.?

13. How far above a dining room table should a chandelier hang?

Centered, about 2 feet. Off-center, about 3 feet

14. I have a dining room table, that needs to be fixed.?

you could use glue and a comalong strap(those ones you ratchet so it gets tighter) fill the gap with glue and strap it and squish it back together or use a piece of plywood under neath make it about 4 - 6 inches on each side of the crack and then use screws ever 2-3 inches away half way from the crack to the edge (so if you have an 8" strip of wood, so 4" is on each side, 2"from edge along whole side) use screws that are as wide as the plywood(3/81/4 " short of coming through other side of table so if your table top is 1" use 1" srews(and the plywood will be the difference from going threw) you could glue it first-make it stronger

This Genius Little Box Will Show You Tomorrow's Weather by Recreating It on Your Living Room Table
You'll never be caught without your umbrella again thanks to this little box which recreates tomorrow's weather forecast in your living room - with actual rain and storm clouds.Yeah, you can get an app for that but it won't look anywhere near as cool on your bedside table.The is the brainchild ofKen Kawamoto - software engineer by day, gadget genius by night - and is part of his plan 'break the barrier between the digital world and the real world.'The microcosm in a box can create real raindrops and clouds, and simulate thunder storms, lightning, and glorious sunshine to show you the weather forecast, or the real-time weather, in your living room.So, it's perfect if you live in a basement/cave, or if you're always being caught out by the weather.The gadget takeshourly forecasts from your computer or smartphone using a wireless connection, and then sets about recreating the meteorological conditions in a tiny confined space.It contains a water pump, mist diffuser, and LEDs to create all the special effects, plus an Arduino microcomputer to control everything.The only thing it won't recreate is snow because, well, Ken's from Tokyo and they don't get much snow there.Ken plans to crowdfund the Tempescope later this year (you can sign up to be notified when he does), but if you're technically minded, he's helpfully released instructions on how to build your own .Can someone build us one while you're at it Please.
A Police Chase That Ended at My Neighbors Dining Room Table, and Healing From a Single Story of Nort
It was two or three in the morning. My wife and daughter and I were awoken by a what sounded like a semi barreling through our front yard. There was a loud squeal, then a crash, and then sirens. I jumped out of bed to look out the window. A car, having been chased by police at high speeds through our Como Park neighborhood, had hit the curb in front of our house and was now lodged into our neighbor's dining room. A half-dozen squad cars surrounded it.I was leery to stand near windows, not knowing whether the suspects might have a gun. Sneaking a glance from behind our living room curtains, I could see the police were able to arrest the driver. The passenger was also tracked down and questioned (he was quickly released).Fortunately, my neighbors were away visiting family that night. Had they been home, and had the tree in the front yard not assumed the majority of the car's impact, their daughter, whose bedroom is above the dining room, may have been harmed or killed. Interestingly, in my writing of this post I spent a good twenty minutes searching the internet to find details on the crash and the arrest but found nothing.Another thing I find interesting is how much press there has been on the high-speed police chase that ended at a North Minneapolis playground. You may remember the story. The chase began on Interstate 94 that ended at Bohanon Park. Three children were seriously injured. I understand that this crash, because of the injuries to children, would have more press. Still, I can not help but think it also gets more press because it took place in North Minneapolis. Stories of tragedy and violence (along with stories of charity attributed to people who are not Northsiders…) seem to be the type of single stories associated with North Minneapolis, both by media outlets and non-residents. The irony with the Bohanon Park story is that the driver in the chase was not even from North. He lived in Richfield.I am writing about this because Bohanan Park is one of the sacred spaces we visit on our North Minneapolis Pilgrimage for Peace Walks. At the July 27th event, I was asked to share a reflection when we stopped at Bohanon Park. What I spoke was a prayer for my own healing. I asked that the single stories — those rooted in racism and white supremacy — stories that would associate negative and needy connotations with North Minneapolis — would be removed from me and other non-IPOC, non-Northsiders. I prayed that my/our eyes would continue to be opened to our shared humanity, to the beauty and nuance of the Northside, and to the responsibility we have to care for one another. Part of that responsibility lies in moving beyond these deeply embedded and toxic single stories.Single stories are dangerous (btw — here's a great TED Talk on "The danger of a single story" by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie). They fuel a way of being engrossed in scapegoating and codependent relationships (e. g. , the "White Savior"). Single stories are caught up in this dualistic thinking (e.g., good/bad, right/wrong, have/have-nots), and they will fail to recognize and honor the complexities of our lives. They are incomplete and dishonest. And when we tell and believe single stories, it turns out that we are all are dehumanized. The truth is Como Park is not just "nice" or "that place with the zoo." Crime and car chases happen in my neighborhood, like the one that ended at my neighbor's dining room table. Bohanon Park is not just the place where that tragedy at the playground occurred. It's a beautiful park where you will see kids in a pool splashing and laughing and men on a lush green field playing cricket. But you may never know these neighborhoods' beautiful and messy stories unless you walk their sidewalks and listen beyond the single stories associated with them.This is one of the many gifts of making pilgrimage. When you embark on pilgrimage, you step beyond your ordinary (the place where single stories often reside), and you encounter — in flesh — the stories of other places and faces. My experience on these pilgrimages in Camden and Lind-Bohanon neighborhoods has been both humbling and healing. I've been overwhelmed by Northside hospitality — leaving each walk with full belly and boxes of produce (some grown in the community garden kitty-corner to Bohanon Park). I've been taken by the beauty of the Northside's parks, homes and gardens. I've shed tears in the alley where Thurman Blevins was killed by police officers. And, I've been inspired by the stories of residents who are committed to good and healing work in these neighborhoods — neighborhoods similar and different to my own. If you are in need of healing from single stories about North Minneapolis, consider joining us for one of these pilgrimages. These walks, hosted by The Camden Promise and Gethsemane Lutheran, include a block party/bbq and take place on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month during July, August and September. Remaining walks will take place August 10 & 24, and September 14 & 28. Come walk the sidewalks and hear the stories. Come and eat food and share laughs. Come get a little bit of your humanity back.RSVP for an upcoming walk via Intertwine's Meetup page or on Facebook.Where can I purchase a thin sheet of plastic (not a plastic table cloth) to go over my dining room table?check tap plastics www.tapplastics.com
How to Decorate Dining Room Table. For
Christmas Dinner - Meal Ideas, Recipes & Tips | eHow.com Tried and true Christmas dinner recipes from the holiday experts at eHow. How to instructions for setting and decorating the Christmas dinner table.1. What are the advantages of dining with your family as often possible?Dining with family is probably the most important part of the day. It's the time when family members have to inquire about each other, to learn what each is up to, to learn concerns and fears for each other, to learn what each other is anticipating, to learn of any struggles that each is having.It is a time to voice concern for one another. It is a time to offer support and care for one another. It is a time where nurturing is made manifest. It is a time to learn to share about each other, but also to share food together. It is a time to practice grace - such as, if there is only one biscuit left, and more than one person wants it, how is that handled?It is a time to practice manners, and to discuss why manners are, or are not, important. It is a time to train our children table etiquette for when they are away from the family table, and at another table.It is a time for laughter. A time for jokes. A time for good natured poking fun at one another, but not in a disrespectful way. In addition to the advantages already mentioned, there is the family bonding that occurs.Growing up, our family always gathered for the evening meal together. Around a table, not around a television. It is the one constant - a positive constant - that I remember about my family, and what it means to be family. There were some rough times around the table, too. My brothers and I would use this time to tell on each other, or to 'accidentally' tell on each other. And our parents would question us and teach us during this time. Also, especially during my teenage years, an innocent question from my Dad, such as, "How was your day?" would make me wonder, "What does he know?" as I carefully crafted a response.We, each of us, knew we were expected to be around that dinner table every evening. No other plans were to get in the way of that. Therefore, it was also a good time simply to check in, without checking in. Parents and children are reassured that we are all still here, still together. Observant family members can tell, from body language, if there may be a problem with which someone is struggling. It is also a time to enforce a certain level of food security. We did not always have a lot of food, but we knew that we would gather round that table, and we would have something to eat. And our parents knew we were eating something. I instilled this practice with my own family, my own children. Those were among the best times of my life. Watching my children sneak food to the dog (there mom was a terrible cook. ) Teaching my children never to criticize anyone who puts a free meal in front of them (sometimes they would complain to me that their mom's meals were so bad they did not think they could eat them. I showed them ways to sneak the food to our dog. And afterward, I would announce, "Hey! Let's go to Dairy Queen!")Each of my children learned how to cook and share a meal with the family. And each of the family learned how to praise and encourage those who cooked. We learned to always have something positive and caring for whoever provided the meal. (Even if the meal was horrible.)We learned how to work together to clean up after the meal. We learned responsibility. We learned the value of working together.When we had other children over who did not come from families where food security was realized, we learned to share abundantly. And, when we picked up a stranger off the highway, or a transient stopped by our house, we learned to share our abundance with others. Because we could. We learned that family is important, as is looking after one another.We learned the meaning of respect, and how to treat others with respect, even if we did not feel like it.We learned that, contrary to popular belief, respect is not earned, but is a gift we give ourselves when we give it to others. Oh, we also learned how to give the Heimlich Maneuver, and we learned how it feels when laughing so hard that liquid we are drinking shoots out of our nose. (This can be handy when out on a date. That is, anticipating it, and possibly avoiding it.)I suppose, in essence, we learned how to be gracious, thankful, people. PeaceI remembered something else. I work with juvenile offenders - those who have broken a law - in a process called, Restorative Justice. One of the most important things we do is, before every meeting, we eat together around a table.For many of these young people, this is the first time they have ever had this experience. Often, when these young people start the process, they may be a few minutes later. However, once they realize that we start with a meal and casual conversation, they tend to do whatever they have to do to make sure they do not miss this part of the evening.This is the time when we bond, and learn things about each other. It is a time to laugh and a time to share. It is a time to get to know one another. And, it is a time to learn that you are valued for who you are.It is probably the most important thing I do - preparing a meal for a bunch of kids who society basically overlooks, ignores, or hates - and sitting down an eating with them.2. Is Television appropriate for meal times?TV during meal times is a big debate.There has been a rule when I grew up that the TV should be off during meals. Technically, the enforcement was easy since the dining table was set in the kitchen with no direct view in the living room. At my grandparents' at that time, TV was on during breakfast.In my opinion, I prefer to have the TV off during the actual time of dining. Why? I like to eat healthy food, not the average news or commercials that are being aired at the moment. I like to discuss about good things that happen in the family, not the latest accident report or drug scandal, and have my focus of what is happening here and now.As well, I prefer to have no cellphones or distractions that drive focus away from that privileged family gathering. If a call is coming in, I just let it go to voicemail.Some may say, especially kids, that dinner moments can be boring without TV... it's up to us, parents, relatives, older brothers/sisters, to make the dinner time pleasing to everyone and give the good example. This way, there will be no temptation to pick up distractions. For example :And then, naturally, TV will not be needed at all.It's okay to set up a dinner around TV or a movie from time to time, as long as everyone is interested by the show.There is another situation where dining and TV can mix : the restaurant. Depending on the cases, it can be OK to watch the screen while waiting for the dishes, but not as everyone is served.3. Does my Disney dining plan include tip?YES it does. Approximatley 18%
I Tried Stripping and Resealing My Dinning Room Table but Each Time I Try It Is More Lined and Bumpy
I have no idea what type of wood the table is made from/of. It is not high quality and what I removed is a polyurethane type of seal that was already on it and had started to peel off in spots. The lines and bumps appear to be paintbrush lines.1. I'm sanding a dining room table and I think I've sanded toooo much?!?u sanded all the way through the veneer now ur down to the under wood......so not much u can do..... if u only went through in a couple of places u might b able to stain the table in a dark color say walnut and it not show...... u can buy more veneer and glue it on but in most cases that would cost more than buying another cheap table....2. Why do dog owners allow their dogs up on the dining room table when guests are eating?love has no boundaries =) RESPECT THE FACT THAT SHE TOTALLY LOVES THE DOG!!!! I would rather have dogs around the table than people, anyway! especially when playing poker =)3. How can I raise the height of my dining room table?If you can remove the legs, I would suggest putting a block between each one and the table. Hopefully there's some overhang to the table that masks the blocks4. Can you put a 11 month old under anesthesia after a fall from the operating room table?I doubt anyone on here will know. If I were you I would go to see another Dr and explain that your child is acting strangely. Maybe you will need a referral to see a neurosurgeon. If he hit his head there could have been brain damage. It might not have anything to do with the anesthetic. I agree they were negligent letting him fall in the first place. It is the first rule of baby care not to leave them up high unattended. They failed in their duty of care. I would not agree with others who say "if it was dangerous they would not do it". Doctors do wrong things all the time - they make mistakes, they are negligent, they are not perfect. Question them - they are not gods. It is your duty as a parent to not just follow them blindly but to do what you know, in your heart, is best for your child.5. ok, whats up with people on facebook saying stuff like "i like it on the dining room table" and ect.?ithought were they like to put their bag?6. How much would you pay for the refinishing/repainting of a dining room table?My table and six chairs were about 400.00 three years ago.... They did an amazing job and it was worth every penny. People think the set that I have cost thousands of dollars7. Broyhill Attic Heirlooms Dining Room Table reviews?Broyhill Attic Heirlooms Dining Table8. what kind of paint do I use on my dining room table?Like the other guy said- enamel or epoxy..... but that's not the real problem. You need to see what is already on the surface and prepare it properly- usually a light sanding and an appropriate primer/undercaot. But if it has a wax or oil finish you may need to clean or degrease it first9. how high should a light be over dining room table?A good 3 or 4 feet10. Is it easy to refinish and restain a dining room table and chairs?yes but you will have to remove the polyeurethane sealer for the stain to have any effect plus when doing so you will most likely remove some of the existing stain leading to uneven staining (breath) therfore the you must strip to naked wood to achieve good results I would charge well over 2000$ depending on intricacy of wood,#of chairs etc. it does'nt make sense unless you are determined and have alot of time and also experience in refinishing wood for amount of time and cost you could sell yours at a garage sale then go out and buy an espresso set you like good luck and do your research11. How do you protect your dining room table when applying those baby proof corner bumpers?How high is your dining table??? I would not even bother, personally. My son figured out he was too tall to walk under it after a few fairly bruise-free encounters. The coffee table, though, is another story. Try applying the adhesive only to the underside corners of the table edge, or if they are the screw in type, drill pilot holes before screwing it on to keep the wood from splitting. In any case, your kid will figure out how to be carefull after about 3 mos of walking, and you can remove the guards before the adhesive rally sets, or before the furniture surface fades too much and shows 'ghosts" of the guards after removal

I have a large pantry in the utilty room that holds all our school books and supplies. We have one lap top computer that we all share. I have a dry erase board mounted on my kitchen wall to use as needed. I have large maps mounted on the walls in the playroom and the utility room, available for reference.

Wow11. does a dining room table have to match the hutch?Wood tends to compliment wood as long as the general style is similar and the quality is good, (not Chinese junk) . I actually find rooms with non-matching furniture, (in good taste of course), to be interesting and never boring. This is especially true of antiques. Go for it!12. My dining room table is 90 inches long - where can I find a non-traditional table runner that hangs over?I would go find a fabric you like, buy a piece long enough(3.5 yds if you want 12" overhang at each end), and sew your own. If you can not sew, find a local seamstress, it's a very simple sewing job so should not cost much for the labour.13. Should I buy a dining room table? Here is the situation.?always buy tables.

I Want to Paint Our Wooden Dining Room Table "antique" White...?
It sounds as though there is a polyurethane coating on the table. the white line is most likely air introduced by heating teh poly. You will need to have the tainted poly sanded off and re-poly would . Not easy to meld into the existing so you may need to refinish the whole top. If it is light enough or not very deep you can mildly wash it off with smooth top stove cleaner or soft-scrub which are granular or abbrasive cleansers. Try the cleanser on an area that is not visible first to test the result. Otherwise, call a finish carpenter. if it is real wood or an inlaid wood, ten it is usually well worth reapiring1. I have an Antique electric sewing machine with built in cabinet?My local St. Vincent's has 3, and they are $15.00 each2. Antique Peanut Machine?Antique Peanut Machine3. Is this an Antique bed, or is it just old, and rusted ? Pic's?It looks quite mundane, and is certainly rusted. Fortunately, you can physically remove rust, or undo it chemically, and you will have yourself a boring looking bed from the 50's. I do not know why you would want that, but you might.4. How much is my antique cameo pendant worth?Antique Cameo Pendant5. My husband Washed my Grandmothers White Antique pillow cases with a pen how do i get it out?I would say use Shout or one of the other stain removers. Once it removed gum stuck on flannel and I thought the flannel gown was ruined forever. Read the labels and see which ones are best for ink.6. Antique piano question?Probably not completely and unless the piano has been rebuilt and tuned recently it is basically worthless7. I have white kitchen cabinets and want to make them look antique...is there a stain that does this?Do not do it. Next thing you will be putting doilies under everything and acting out your grandmother fantasies8. How can you tell if a table is an antique? Its an oval end table light brown wood?Are you serious? No one here could possibly tell you. The one thing I will say is that no antique table is likely to have a glass top. The production of plate glass is a relatively modern development. What you have is likely as not a retro piece. Mid 20th century probably...probably being the operative word as vacuous questions like yours cannot be answered definitively.9. What is the price on a antique wood stove, approximately 1940 for the year?you can go to antiqnet.com or yahoo's shopping bar to see what number of prices es that are in today hope this helps - good luck :)10. How do I open an Antique trunk without the key?Take it to a locksmith, they can open it and/or make a key for it without damaging it11. Assuming antique shop owners are knowledgeable, how do they sometimes manage to let valuable items sell for less?Being knowledgeable is one thing, being omniscient quite another. Also, many antiques stores price on a simple "cost plus" basis, plus some adjustment for items that they know they bought cheaply, but that does not always get the right estimate. Finally, they may be knowledgeable, but that does not mean they have the customers or access to them - easier in an internet-powered era than even 20 years ago, but not necessarily always.12. We have candle sticks. The markings on the bottom look like HSC with the #D6003. Antique?Photo, Photo, Photo, Photo, Photo, Photo, Photo, post to flickr.com (same password as here) or similar site post the URL back with your question. The number is probably a part number Except by pure luck, with out a photo you wo not even be getting the beginning of a good answer13. What's the best wax or polish for an antique mahogany dinner table?Brazilian wax makes the legs look a lot better, whereas French polish can leave nasty stains14. What would you like to ask?How do I remove grease buildup on an antique cast iron skillet?You do not . People wait YEARS for that build up. That's why they are non-stick15. How can I give black coloured metal ornaments a rusty antique look?Craft store all sell "patina" chemicals. Find out what the black metal is and purchase the proper one, or use the sponging technique

How to Make a Wooden Dining Room Table
While learning how to makea wooden dining room table isn't going to be the easiest home improvement you are likely to undertake, it probably isn't as difficult as you might think either.In fact you don't even have to start the process from scratch if you don't want to as we'll show you how to reuse items such as reclaimed wooden doors that you can repurpose and make into a table too. However if you want to create your own DIY table from scratch we will walk you through all the steps from choosing the wood to measuring up, cutting and making the final piece.Choose your WoodChoosing wood for your dining room table is a little down to personal preference, and a lot down to your budget. Good wood options for dining tables are:Credit: if you can't find the wood you're really after, you can always choose a less expensive option, and add a suitable stain when you're done to create the illusion of a more expensive piece of wood. A list of other woods you might want to consider, along with their advantages and disadvantages, can be found in our article on how to build wood countertops.For the purposes of this exercise, we are going to make a butcher block, style dining table, as it is an easier and less cumbersome process. You may also want to bear this in mind when shopping around for wood. You can of course cut your wood down to size when you get home, but if you can get the store or lumber yard to do it for you, all the better. If you can also get hold of quartersawn timber then do so, as it provides more stability.Make the Table TopA standard dining room table is around 6 feet by 4 feet, but make sure to measure the available space in your dining room and adjust these measurements accordingly.Credit: creating a butcher's block top, it is easier to work in small numbers than to try and glue together 20 pieces in one go. With your butcher block strips already cut, work how many strips you need to make up the width of your table. In this example we will say our strips are 2 inches, so we will need 24 strips of wood measuring at least 6 feet. When it comes to cutting your strips to length, it is worth adding at least an extra 1/16 inch, to make sure of a neat finish with room to plane/sand everything to the same length at the end.As we are working to a width of 4 feet, we will split each section down into 1 foot sections, so begin by gluing the edges of 6 strips of wood with wood/carpenters glue. Align up your strips, and use clamps to keep them into place. After 30 minutes, wipe off any excess glue.Once dry, you can remove the clamps and repeat the process, until you have all 4 sections glued together. Now put all of these sections together, joining each section to the other, again with wood glue. Try to match up the lengths as best you can, before clamping the whole lot and waiting for the glue to dry.You can now hand plane the edges of the table, to give a neat finish to the ends, and finishing off by planning and then sanding the table top.Make the Table Legs & FrameThe standard height measurement to bear in mind when making a dining table is between 29-31 inches. If we make allowances for joining the legs to the table top, that then gives us about 27-30 inches of length needed for each table leg - making them a little longer is better, as they can be easily cut down to size later. How thick you make the legs, is obviously dependent on your chosen style, and how big the table is - the bigger the table, the more sturdy the legs will need to be. If the table is really quite big (over 6 feet in length), then you may need to think about adding 6 legs, rather than 4.Credit: appropriate lengths of 4x4 timber will make the process of making table legs easy. Once cut to length, they can be joined to the frame.The frame of your table should be the dimensions of your table top, less 6 inches for each measurement - then take off the width of your table legs x2. If we are using 4x4 for the legs, then your frame pieces will be 14 inches less for each piece, than the table top measurements. A simple frame again, made with 4x4 is a simple enough job, making sure you leave the corners open to fit the legs into. Then you can adjoin the legs at each corner, and once you've established it's not going to wobble - you can add your beautiful table top over the frame, and legs that should support it superbly.A Cheat's Guide to Building a Wooden TableCredit: Wooden Table made from a doorYou could, of course, make life easier for yourself and create a new table from existing products. Why not skip the section on making the table legs completely and just make a new wooden table top for your dining room, affixing it onto an existing table.Or, be really ingenious (and eco friendly), by reusing a wooden door to make a dining room table, and use the door as your table top - either make legs and a simple frame (as above), or again, affix the door to an existing piece of furniture.Finishing & ProtectingWhichever method you choose to use to make your table, you will need to make sure it is finished off and protected properly before it can be used.Renting an orbital sander is a less-exhausting way of ensuring a smooth finish to your table, as well as offering superior results when compared with using sandpaper alone. Always make sure to sand with the grain, to get the smoothest finish possible.When it comes to protecting yourtable, the choice is yours, whether you use wax, oil, or a varnish. If you oil a table, you will continue to need to 'feed' your table, a couple of times a year, varnishing won't need doing again for years unless you want to, and waxing is easy to spot-finish, when needed. Try your chosen material underneath the table, or inside a table leg to see how it comes out, as often the results can be darker than you think, even if you are using a clear varnish.Once the finish is dry, you are free to enjoy many meals at the wooden dining room table you made yourself.

Use a sandable wood fill. Let the repairs dry completely. Sand these repairs smooth by using 100 grit sandpaper, then sand with 220-grit sandpaper. (Do not sand the entire table just the repair areas.) Clean it thoroughly by washing with mild dish soap. It does not have to be wet, just wipe it clean. No rinsing needed. After the table is dry. Seal it with a primer. You could use Bin or Kilz. Follow manufactures suggestions. That will dry fast. Select what colors you want (use a good polyurethane or a good enamel paint, gloss or semi-gloss.) Follow all safety requirements and insure that you watch the kids.
