Luvstocraft invited me to join this forum. I'm very pleased to and it's just in time to show off my new/old coffee table. I bought the table about 20 years ago at a garage sale and it stayed in a partially stripped condition until last month.LOL Seems our own projects are often put off in favor of others.
It had been painted an electric blue and unfortunately the pigment had saturated into the wood grain. I painted it black and took inspiration from the petite point tulips in my sofa's upholstery. I designed and painted the fantasy tulip garland with a simple stroke technique and sealed it with two coats of a satin acrylic varnish. Next, I plan to paint the door panels in my entertainment armoire to match.
With a few dollars worth of acrylic craft paint, I've managed to save this old thing from a landfill.
