I found this ugly old Duncan Phyfe Knock Off Drum Table in a womens bathroom at an antique store last year.  After digging it out of the garage this month, I gave it two coats of primer.  Then I painted it black (sorry no pics of those steps). I then I coated it in a burgandy.  After that, I took my Ebony Minwax stain and brushed it on and wiped it off...it was so awesome.  I loved the look it gave...and it dried like laquer.    I coated the top with a thicker coating and stain as the top was pretty dinged up.  I love the finish.  I sprayed the metal claw feet in a high gloss black paint and clear coat seal.  

My hubby loves this table so much!  I don't think I will be selling this one.

I love this piece and am happy the hubby does too! He doesn't know it yet, but it will soon be his end table next to his "OOGLY" Easy Chair my 10 year son won for him on Father's Day! Anything to make that chair look better. Posted: 8:11 am on September 14th

Anyway, the table color is perfect and the finish turned out great.
