How To-Sday - Refinish an Old Wooden End Table

    I freehanded the design onto the primed coat with a pencil and then filled it in with some acrylic paint. I inverted the colors for the top and bottom to break it up a bit.

    I did a second coat with the acrylic {not pictured} and then sprayed it with a clear poly to seal and protect it {also not pictured}. The textile that inspired the project is below the table in the above photo.
