This hall table was in need of a makeover. It's hard to see in the picture but it was very scratched and worn on the top surface. Liking the shape of it I wanted to give it a new life. Being very dark I thought I would lighten up the legs and keep the top dark for some contrast.
The base coat I used was drop cloth and after 2 coats I almost kept it like that, as it did look nice and modern all one color. But after all I decided to try coffee bean on the top though to add some more contrast and applied it with a dry brush technique to make it look grainy and it worked. Then I gave it a quick coat with a sponge of Gator Hide for protection from scratching or water marks.
I was very happy with the finished product. It looks lighter and more modern perfect for a small area.
Hope you enjoyed!
