Don't dispose unpresentable and old piece of furniture, it could be a beautiful detail in your home with just a little bit of money and lot of love and will. I decided to make an old, non-interesting table into luxury, but also and shabby chic coffee table.
Firstly, I removed glass from the top of the table and old, metal handles. I gently sanded, washed and dried the table to remove any earlier varnish and paint.
I put 3D ornaments around the handle with stencil and plaster for wood.
I put primer before the main paint.
Firstly, I coloured the table with gray-brown acrylic paint for wood. After the paint dried, I applied white acrylic paint. I scraped the edges a little bit with sand paper to reach the shabby chic effect.

I put the new, more luxurious, crystal handles
At the end I painted some details in white colour on the corner of the table, put some gold patina on edges and 3D ornaments and waxed the whole table with a clear wax.

Until next project, warm regards!
