I started by removing the faux leather from the table then painted a coat of primer and 2 coats of Sherwin Williams Dazzle. I used an old lace tablecloth to paint the design on the front of the table. I cut a diamond shape out of cardboard and traced the design onto the sides and painted the diamonds with an all purpose acrylic yellow craft paint. Once the yellow diamonds were dried, I traced the outline of the diamond template. I painted the lines red to add a nice argyll pattern. I accented the pattern with some silver furniture tacks and acrylic flat backed rhinestone beads. I painted the edges and feet with liquid silver leaf and sat back to admire my handiwork. I have not quite decided what I want to do with the top of the table. I am thinking about adding storage shelves on top, but am going to see what storage I will still need after I finish getting my workspace set up. I am going to use the drawer to stash away my small fabric collection.
Has anyone else transformed anything lately? If so, I would love to hear about it!
