before picture - this is a vintage coffee table, it was olive green, with a glass top.  Not bad in its original condition, but I knew it could be more fun.

I got this cool vintage coffee table, loved the shape and the glass was in very nice condition.  It had a girly vibe to me, so I decided to paint it a very very pale seashell pink (which was antiqued with a little brown wash), and I used a chintz style paper (pinks and greens, roses all over) which was applied under the glass.  Some of the brush marks showed through the glass and made it look old and very cool.  Sold this one in 24 hours.  yippee!!
