Rustic NC Coffee Table With a Heart Emoticon Where Winston-Salem Is

I recently revamped a coffee table for the 2015 Heart Ball Association Auction in Winston-Salem, Nc coming up in April. All proceeds go towards cardiovascular disease research!
Before. Very beat up old coffee table. But the wood was in great condition.
Inside of the drawers. First step, CLEAN everything!
Next step, sand it down! I had to use my belt sander on this baby the dents were so deep.
Fine sand it with 150 grit.
Sketch out design. I don't use stencils. That's kind of what I'm known for. Just printed out a small silhouette of NC and eyed it. Then paint you base color all around.
Stain the wood silhouette and paint heart. Then gloss! Finito!
