Coffee Table Do Over...stained Top Design
I picked up this plain coffee table up at the goodwill for 4.99. It was sturdy but was really very beat up. So I figured a good sanding and cleanup and it would make a nice table...and hopefully a good profit.
I began by sanding the table with a 100grit sandpaper. Taking it slowly as I run into a lot of pieces that are solid wood except the top, and it is only a thin layer of wood. I finished with a 220grit
I drew out my design very lightly with a pencil.
Started shading the first flower with stain. I used dark oak. I used a piece of cut up t shirt wrapped around my finger to shade.
I also like to use small paintbrushes to outline some things or to get a certain effect. It is slowly coming together.
I finished off with 3 coats of poly acrylic. Nice and shiny!
I painted the base a very dark sea green/blue and dark waxed over. I love the finished product and happy with how it came out!
