I received this table from a curb and it had damage to the top but the rest was nice so I decided to give it a new life.
I removed the drawer and taped newspaper around the legs to preserve the wood.
I roughed up the surface with sandpaper and wiped it with a damp cloth to remove the sanding dust and then I spray painted the base with the turquoise paint. I used a cloth and wiped on wood stain over the turquoise paint to antique the look and tone down the bright paint and sealed it with clear coat.
I wrapped the entire base with newspaper to protect the turquoise paint and painted the top with the purple paint.
I removed the knob to retain the wood and Used sap green watercolor and painted a thin coat onto the front of the drawer and sealed the drawer with the clear coat.
Acrylic paint supplies to add my image to the top. **NOTE** I added a bit of the brown paint to the green acrylic to tone down the green a bit.
I sketched the image I wanted onto paper and traced it onto the surface and it left an indent in the painted surface then I used a sharpie to outline the image.
I reversed the sketch and did a mirror image of the design.
I used the acrylic paint to fill in the image and sealed the entire table with clear coat. **NOTE**You can cut out your desired image and decoupage it to the top before clear coating. Even easier!
Let it dry and there you have it.
