Coffee table with animal print, gold paint and DIY chalk paint


My best friend had this coffee table and said I could have it for FREE. I got my creative juices flowing. My daughter and husband both have different opinions My daughter said I should have distressed it and my husband wondered why the top was a different color from the legs and bottom apron. I think its perfect just the way it is and turned out exactly as I had planned.What do you think?

I used brown craft paper on top of the table
