I wanted to share a way to re purpose old furniture. This is not really a step by step but simply photos of my process to inspire you to reuse your items :)
Here are the photos with brief descriptions.
First I painted the entire table with black gloss rustoleum paint and let it dry completely.
I had a basic design (colorful and some art nouveau influences) in mind but nothing specific. I used inexpensive acrylic paint and just went for it.
Once I got the design in place and it was completely dry I sealed the table with a water based polyurethane. I used 3 coats which I let dry in between each coat.
Before you consider getting rid of something or spending a fortune on something new and not as well made, think about re purposing something in your home.
Thanks for reading!
