Naturally, I reimagined it to reflect more of our style and suit our space, taking its appearance from so-so to a oh, so sleek and sophisticated look with just a several coats of gold metallic paint (a favorite) which is the same exact one I used on this project. Here's what I did:
1. I dusted the table really well with an old t-shirt, preparing it for its paint job.
2. Using a 1 1/2"inch paint brush, I applied light layers of paint going in one direction, allowing drying time in between before the next coat.
3. Allow paint to completely dry before handling (about 24 hours or more). And voila! As simple as 1-2-3.
With just three coats of paint later, the table adds such a subtle touch of elegance to the room. It now helps balance and define the living room area from the dining area. Ranking second as one of my favorite additions to the room besides the fireplace makeover. I smile every time I walk pass it.
