I should have taken a before picture. This little table had great lines but the finish was soooo dated. Now its the Bell of the Ball.

VignetteStudio writes: Hi - I used a glossy red spray paint (a few coats) to avoid brush strokes - I think the brand was Krylon . The black that runs along the lip of the table was applied with a brush and artist paint. I also used a sponge brush for the coats of poly acrylic sealer. Cara Posted: 6:55 pm on October 5th
